The lighting is absolutely beautiful on this one John. Is it Oils? What size? Just out of interest.

Thank you very much Jason! It's a 9x12 acrylic on masonite panel.

Hi John,
What a nice piece! Wrens are most fascinating to watch aren't they, as they love investigating all of the little nooks & crannys. I also love nasturtiums. Nice Job!

Johnny - once again I'm blown away with your work. Seeing a bit of how you do it was a real treat. I wished I were a fly on the wall in your studio or better yet you'd do a video - after all flys have such short lives and get in to yucky stuff ;-)

John, your paintings are incredible! Really! Your talent never ceases to amaze me. I look at your work & always feel like I'm looking at the real thing. YOU are God's Xerox. ;)

This is a super piece. OK, so here is the standard question . . . have you considered this as a possible entry for Birds in Art? Yeah, I know, I know, there are plenty of painters submitting, but not many with your eye and creative talent. 'Nuff said. :)

Awesome John! The nuances in this painting are phenomenal with respects to the blends, details and lighting.

I love to gaze upon your work but, you know that already. Keep them coming.
