"There's rough waters ahead lad and there's no turning back!" A nice stormy sea on a winter's day.


  1. Your paintings are terrific, Randall! And this is in reply to the comment you left on my marine study: I've done lots of studies from photos. I also recommend E John Robertson's classic marine painting books, and Don Demer's dvd on Wave Painting. I know my problem this particular day was the distraction of talking with painting buddies I hadn't seen in a long time. Focus, focus, focus. Thank you for your thoughts.

  2. This is a beautiful painting--it fills my eyes, which is the greatest compliment I can give.

    Thank you for your comment on my artwork. Alphonse Mucha is one of my greatest inspirations, so your comparison to his style made my day! Thanks again!

  3. Thanks for the info D, will look them up. Thanks Beth, I really like Mucha's work and was contemplating on doing a painting in his style which is in the project bin. Thank you for commenting.


  4. Ola Randall,parabéns pelas lindíssimas pinturas que a mim lembraram a beleza do mar do Hawaii,particularmente do Kauai onde mora minha filha.Adorei conhecer-te e a teu magnífico trabalho.Meu grande abraço.SU.
