Martha,

My office blocks access to blogs, so i have to send my comment this
way.

I like paintings that use distant landscapes to give them depth.
'The Travelling Companions' would be flat and cramped without the
woods,
water, and hills in the background. Sometimes artists just put a scrap
of
landscape in a corner which is all it takes to give a painting depth.
Once
I noticed it throughout Andrew Wyeth's work, I found the device used in
a
lot of art work.

I enjoy your website and hope you can stick with it.
(alas, everything takes time!)
