  1. Frank, these are totally adorable, and are a perfect illustration of why the screen gives just a clue of the real object...

    I adore how you use the palette, another proof that art is flourishes when you apply rules and limits on your means of expressions.

    What I especially like:
    #1 The small orange spots on the right tree, and the naked canvas spots.
    #2 The palette-ed-sky, the thin blue water line, and the direction of the palette at the bottom that goes against the water sense.
    #3 The function of the yellow border
    #4 The oranges at the bottom and the scraping of the trees.
    #5 How the red borders push the warmth of the sunlight, and the trees at the back.
    #6 How the smallest traces of white (top right) can be so dramatic.

    Hope the sold to non-sold ratio increases!
