Lovely Stephen - to paint predominantly in grey yet for the result to be so commanding and have so much presence.

With its rough background texture and the colored graffitis...
A beautiful piece Stephen.

Exceptional. Beautiful work, Stephen.

Wow. This is great.

Hi Sheila, sometimes less is more, right?

Stephen Magsig said...

Thanks Pierre, I really loved your last tree piece. So different from the hard edged metal landscapes

Thanks Jelaine and Frank, I appreciate your comments.

Hey that's a beauty, a real deal at $100. This is my favorite so far (starting from the top). Nice work. I especially like how the darks are slightly transparent, and the opaque sky is painted carefully around to give it that almost photorealist look.

Cheers,

Mark Laver
