1,2,6,8

Katherine Tyrrell said...

To hang together?

6 (well I would say that wouldn't I!), 8, 1 and 2

Do the reverse of zoom and make them tiny pics on the screen and see what they look like against one another.

M said...

1,3,6,7

But they are all beautiful.

Anne said...

5,6,4,1 are my favourites in that order. Really enjoy your blog, Anne McCormick

Lisa Le Quelenec said...

Janelle Goodwin said...

1, 5, 6 and 8. Hard to choose!

B Boylan said...

1, 2, 6, and 8. Nice to see them all lined up, what a story these create.

1,2, 6 & 8. 4 of a kind, always a winner.

Casey Klahn said...

8, 6, 5, 1. Not in that order, but those are the ones.

Refreshing to see this post - so nice. I also love #2, but I am weird.

Casey Klahn said...

Now I looked at the other comments. I am very happy the #2 is well received-it has much art.

Caroline said...

8,5,3 and 4 because they mean something to me.

Katherine van Schoonhoven said...

1, 5, 6, 7. All are good, so no wrong answers!

Christabel said...

1, 2, 7, 8

Karen said...

1, 3, 8, 6 !

:)

They get better each time I look.

SamArtDog said...

Yeah... 1,2,6 and 8. Though others are sentimental faves, like the one of Penobscot.

Too bad you have such a paltry collection to choose from. NOT!

Barbara said...

Without looking at the votes of anyone else, I vote for 1,5,6,8 (not in that order). Now I'll see what everyone else chose.

Vinayak said...

All are lovely paintings. I love 1, 6 and 7 in particular.
Best wishes,

Hi Loriann,

4 & 5 have great depth and the feeling of freedom.

mariannepost said...

Loriann: My gosh, just catching up on your blog posts. Obviously lots going on in your life. Hope you are well on your way to recovery. Choices, decisions, all resonate with me but I chose, 1, 3, 5, 6. No 2 is right in there, but I know that's 5!

Anonymous said...

Loriann - I vote for 1, 2, 6 and 7. There's something particularly luminous about them. Great to see you going so strong.

Sue Furrow said...

Theresa Evans said...

3, 5, 7 & 8 but it's a difficult choice! They are all lovely.

Anonymous said...

I think they are all great! But my choice...
1, 2. 5 & 6.

Kim McCutcheon said...

I,6,7, and 8 are the strongest compositions. Beautiful.

Hi Loriann,
Here are my choices:
1-reflections in the water -sense of space
3-the light in the foreground,spacing of the trees,
compressed height adds to the visual tension
6-sense of light and space-feeling of warmth,
dark shapes on the left create visual counterpoint
7-the reflections in the water,lighter distant values,
trees on the left act as a counterpoint to balance
out the lighter values
