"There is an elegant simplicity to this landscape. Sky, land and water painted with muted colors in a perfect harmony. The simple shapes of the buildings and the textures of these structures punctuated with doors and windows are in contrast to the reflection of the water and the softness of the sky; and yet they all work together. This is one painting I would love to see in person. This is not a subject that anyone would say is beautiful or interesting in itself. And yet the artist has given this scene both qualities; he did it with excellent use of the media. Not only would I like to see the painting, but it makes me want to see the location. The last point that attracted me to this work was the figure doing laundry at the edge of the water. I love it, portraying a person not as the focus, but as a part of the larger environment. It would be easy to get philosophical about this work."
