There is definitely something special about this one - it really pulls you in. And even more impressive when you realize it's only a 5 x 7!! You get such power in small formats.

Elle pourrait être l'héroïne d'un roman d'Agatha Christie...
J'aime l'atmosphère que vous créez à la perfection en faisant contraster les foncés et les clairs... EXCELLENT.
Bises et joyeux noël...

This is really fine, Celeste! It so reminds me of Vincent's 'Cafe Terrace at Nigh' with that spill of gorgeous of yellow.

Love the air of mystery, how the mind races to construct narratives around the elements - the dark figure of the woman, the lights in the windows, the reflections on the road.Is she running? Looks like movement in her coat. Or is a dress? And where does the signpost point to? Mystery, mystery.

That you you will have a great Christmas is no mystery. You have so many friends around the world and troops in your own neighbourhood that you know in person. May it be a fun-filled holiday season filled with laughter.

Thanks for your friendship through the months and the genuine interest you have taken in my painting.

Warmest regards,
Harry.
