OOO! Thats money! I just read your comment on my blog and clicked over and wow, this came out awesome. My second thought was, I think I might steal this concept in a future painting..very cool Todd.

All my best to you and as always..it's a pleasure sharing a name with you.

It would just seem to me that simple and dramatic doesn't fit in the same phrase......in this case it does. Really cutting edge!

Hi Todd,
This painting is a show stopper! The difference in color in the background between the left and right side creates tension which is united in the focal point - the glass. I so admire the way you have achieved the translucence of the glass - I could go on, but I am sure you already know how superior this painting is. Bravo!

I like the stillness of your water drops against a beam of light. Your paintings are always deceptively simple, but there are many elements in play, and they're beautifully balanced. Terrific piece.

Thanks John and Cheryl!

Incredible.

Two things I have a hard time with... Glass jars and spoons.

Great work!
