Jeffrey:  thank you for sharing your wonderful other worlds skyline.  who would have thought that there's that much going on in another galaxy far far away lol!

Theresa: what could be more beautiful than the NYC skyline at night?!  You captured this beautifully.

Julie: a great whimsical little skyline painting - I love it!

Bill:   my favorite thing about this piece is that little plane coming towards the viewer!  that totally took me by surprise and I really like that in any painting.  great job!

Greg: this is stunning!  how large is this piece and is this skyline from your imagination or an actual place?

I  painted this from a photo taken by a friend of a spectacular sunrise over Port Hope Simpson in Labrador a few days ago. It's an ATC. The  photo doesn't pick up some of the more subtle shadings.

Hi Ev,

I really like your contribution to this month's theme.  Right away it reminded me of when I fly into a city in the wee morning hours and I get to watch the sunrise.  Nothing like the back drop of sun and skyfire over the mountains!  Nice Ev.

Thank you, Susanne. "Skyfire" is a very wonderful, poetic way of describing it. This is a winter sunrise over an  almost completely frozen inlet of the Atlantic Ocean  and the "red sky at morning/sailors take warning" seems very prophetic. In the original photo, you can see the storm clouds already forming. I was very moved by it. My young friend took the photo from a helicopter.

My "City at Night"....

Polka dotted, flowered and heart decorated roofs, windows that look like small colourful buttons, a black cat playing on the rooftop - there's just so many fun elements here that are a delight to the eye.  I love your style Linda!

Great piece Naomi!

Skyline screamed big city and New York to me.  Watercolor paper with Gesso, acrylic paints, pen, distress inks, old book pages, ribbon, glitter

Thank you everyone who contributed to March's theme. Great work!
