Unfortunately we could not use this photo. It was extremely dark, you could not see any detail on the building. Looked like a black block even with our lighting.

Beautiful rendering of a beautiful subject. Granddaughters!

I have looked everywhere for this particular viewpoint of the mill in springtime. Beautiful colors. It’s perfect and was easy to frame. My mom was thrilled to receive it as it holds special memories for her.

Good job, it was liked by the person who received it as a gift

January 13th, 2019

I gave this gift to a friend who was going through the final days of her husband's illness. She has it displayed very centrally in her home where all gather. It is such a gorgeous display of color and brightness in their environment, and now that they are experiencing loss I know it will continue to provide a valuable reminder of our faith - and the beauty of life. Even for those who don't seem to have a strong faith, they have been drawn into the beauty of this print. Thank you for this wonderful gift to share!

Artist's Description

This mouse is about to make a move that will put him in check mate. "Fool's Mate" is a series of chess maneuvers that lures a newer player into moving his pawns into positions that leaves him open to checkmate. A very quick game. And yes, I googled it since playing chess isn't my forte.

About Vanessa Bates

My fine art is almost exclusively in acrylic. I believe that the canvas is where the true color mixing begins. The colors on my palette are therefore loosely folded together before being applied. The subject matter itself is often chosen for humor, expressed either as visual irony or lighthearted observation. It�s my sincerest hope that any of my views, whether they are inspired by the political or otherwise, be apparent only to those who have an interest in that subject. Otherwise, the piece should stand on its own as an enjoyable composition. For FAA, I've posted my latest digital pieces. For my latest work, please visit
