Many thanks Donna, you are most kind and I appreciate your vote.

Mike - this is an incredible painting, all the way down to each and every tiny detail. The composition is exceptional, as are the bold colors. Very awe-inspiring image as well as your masterful skill. Certainly a f/v for me.

Thank you Lisa for your kind comment.

Thank you Sydne, I am no photographer so I had this shot by a professional as a transparency and later scanned onto a CD.

Many thanks Peri for one of the best comments ever!

EXCEPTIONAL! The amount of detain in this work is phenomenal! I feel as though, if I leaned in and stared at it long enough, I'd smell the smoke and wet ash, and hear the squelching of the boots. I am very impressed! Then ... after this, reading your description ... Awed, is the more appropriate word!

Many thanks Rick for featuring my artwork in your group, my younger brother used to be a fireman at Camels Head station in Plymouth back in the seventies whereas I too was a fireman but of a different kind in the late fifties.
