Hi Brian! Thanks for liking my painting "On The Horizon" for the West Elm challenge! I love the details you capture with your photography ~ they become abstract and they are great. Also, "A Northern Dusk" is amazing! Those colors. It kinda sorta reminds me of my painting in photo form. All the best, Hannah
