I love the water tower image. It reminds me of a water tower that I used to hike to with my friends when I was around 7 and 8 yrs. old. It was at the end of an old fire trail in the woods. We never crossed the fence around it, though, let alone climbed it. And it was more silvery, not rusted looking. Still, the idea of young boys at a water tower surrounded by evergreens brought that memory back for me.
Oh wow I really love the couple decorating the room. Amazing! I really envy your ability to work on subjects like that. I get bored too easily. Everything with me is fantasy fantasy sci fi sci fi... Give me a mundane scene but painted so convincingly i'm just there!
