Thanks so much JJ!!

Williamsburg, VA - United States

This is WONDERFUL! The subtle harmony of colors at our level with the mountains behind it are so peaceful, as are the boy, kite, and dragon, as you point out.. But such peaceful harmony by such items, I think is the real mastery here, and my mind follows my eyes around them and back and forth, so pleasingly. What a nice accomplishment, Tayla! And even your own profile photo here fits the painting so well! Peace, etc., Bruce

Talya Johnson replied:

Bruce, I really appreciate your enthusiastic comment and attention to detail! This particular painting took a lot of thought, compositional and color planning in order to pull off the the difficult and flat mid-day lighting. It is very rewarding to have my efforts noted :)

OH! ...and I also meant to say that, if he can face life with such courage, so can I!

Talya Johnson replied:

You certainly can, as you already have!!! hank you for sharing your experience, it was very meaningful to me. :)

Longmont, CO - United States

I have always admired your brilliant use of color and your strong compositions. But, the story that goes with this one more than brought tears to my eyes, a few sobs escaped me, too. I have survived stage IV ovarian cancer for almost 6 years--yet I am not cancer free and still have to fight to survive. I bucked the system and refused chemo and radiation. I like to think that I have some amount of courage to face life's challenges, too--as I'm sure most of us do! ...Now that I know the story of a boy facing life with such courage, I am purchasing this, because it is a reminder to me of what I have done so far, and what I have yet still to do. Thank you, Talya. I believe this work from you will touch many hearts. v/f

Thank you, Becky!

Bolton, ON - Canada

Dragons are powerful symbols for me. This painting exemplifies courage and strength, life and beauty, all at the same time. The dragon looks like he is going to fly freely away to another place, far, far, away and I love that! f/v

Talya Johnson replied:

Thank you for your thoughtful remarks and blessings!!

Bucharest, Ro - Romania

What a charming, priceless moment you've captured in your work, Talya, and how masterfully you painted it. Love so much the atmosphere and also the composition. Superb use of colors with warm shades in front and cold shades on the mountains to create the wonderfully atmospheric depth. Gorgeous work. f,v

Wonderful observations, Ana! Thank you very much!!
