I would love to find myself in this surrounding, just to see it in person

It's one of my more serene paintings.
It's loosely based on an area that used to be near my home. It was just an old foundation with a partial brick wall on a small hill.
There was a wooded gully below with an aqueduct leading into it.
I embellished it with my imagination over time.

It is a fantastic, mysterious world, sort of like a levitating graveyard with embellishments. A little joke there, but that is only an element in your paintings, they are so complex, with layers upon layers, not trying to get smart because Photoshop is already doing that. But there are 3 or 4 paintings in one of yours, a story within a story which is most beautiful, by my regards.

:O This is extraordinary James.  The details are wonderful.  Most of all there's a unifying feel to the whole work.

What a stunning and magic place!! *O*
I wish I could live there...

Thanks. It's very loosely based on a place near where I live. It was a small abandoned cement building and drainage pipe.
