Thank you!

Thanks so much, AnnaJo!! This one was a ton of fun to paint!!

I am totally impressed, Talya! You managed to say so much with so few colors and brushstrokes. It reads like a much larger painting. I love the bright yellows in the foreground. You are, indeed, a master painter! f/v

BEAUTIFUL!

Wow !!! How masterfuly you rendered the majesty of the mountains in just few amazingly effective brush strokes, Talya. The touches of yellow in the foreground and the red cadmium are simply brilliant. Love this. f,v

Talya Johnson replied:

You are incredibly perceptive, Ana! The cad red (actually bright red I like to use instead because of it's intense saturation) was mixed into all my colors in this painting in order to keep it harmonized! Thanks so much! I actually scraped the first try at this so I could get as few strokes as possible. :)

Great painting...love the intense, deep, sense of forboding with the approaching storm. Wonderful painterly brush strokes.

Thank you so much, Susan!

The lighting is so beautiful in this, Talya! Love the brushwork, but the "feel" of this painting is what I really like about it. Also, I see a hidden signature!

Talya Johnson replied:

Ah, brilliant!! Tank you, Bette...my children usually enjoy finding my signatures in my paintings too ;)

great looseness! v

Talya Johnson replied:

Thank you, Debi!

Beautifully done. V/F

Talya Johnson replied:

Thank you Lisa!

Beautiful brush strokes! V

Talya Johnson replied:

Thanks!

I feel the sense of both my smallness and the immensity of creation, that makes mountains and valleys, rivers and oceans, and yet allows me to still be witness to all its beauty. I feel that awe as I take this painting in.

Talya Johnson replied:

I'm so glad I was able to express all that to you, Julia!

Love the suggestive, impressionistic brush technique, good work!!!!!

Talya Johnson replied:

Thanks Dumba! I used a super big brush for this piece. :)

Featured in Alaska Beyond your Dreams Group! Thank you Sharon!

Love the colors in this painting!

Talya Johnson replied:

thanks Glenda! I was experimenting with mixing in a color with all my other colors to harmonize the painting using a limited palette. I used perm red.Just a smidge in all the colors.

Love the broad brushstrokes and the sense of freedom. Voted/faved.

Talya Johnson replied:

Thanks, Rachel!

awesome capture v

Talya Johnson replied:

Thank you!

Having seen this at one of your exhibitions I can truly say you captured the three dimensional effect of the clouds the mountains and the flat lands. It is wonderful.

Talya Johnson replied:

That is such a compliment, Marie, since giving dimension can be so difficult in essentially flat works, thank you. I posted this one in special request ;)
