Very well executed Brian but not the kind of thing I’d like hanging on the wall. There’s enough misery and devastation in the world without needing a constant reminder. Excellent tonal values here.

Ooh er ... but very good!

Thank you very much, Carole, for the generous review. It's not my cup of tea, either. LOL Much appreciated reply Thanks, Heather, for the thumbs up/down *smile*. Always appreciated. Best to both Bri

Grim yes , excellent definitely, well drawn out and painted .

Thank you very much, Dixie, for the more than kind comments. Much appreciated. It took some time to paint but it's done now. Best Bri

Some miserable old geysers there Bri! Very good tonal work….

Thanks, Carole, for the highly amusing response to this painting. Made me smile. Delighted the tonal work is hitting the mark. Bri

I’m the odd one out here Brian……I think it’s fabulous! Would make a great album cover!

I've heard of dumb and dumber but this is grim and grimmer! A definite challenge for you Brian ( shudders).

Thank you very much, Fiona and Marjorie, for the great comments. Always appreciated. Fabulous is far too kind, Fiona, but very nice to read. As for an album cover, you might have found something there. *smile* A challenge indeed, Marjorie, so much so that at one point I thought "what the hell am I doing". Surprisingly enjoyable when I'd finished. Best to both. Bri
