I'd really like to get a close look at this when it comes in.

I do prefer "It Felt Good To Be Lost" to this print, I do like the nature prints Dan does too...

Looks like the town is emerging from a mountain glacier. I really like it.

Strange Title, but who am I to judge, I'm sure there's a perfect reason for it though...I do like this print though, will be happy when my next sub shipment comes...

i like most of it... not sure why he decided to keep all the water white like that... i think it really detracts from the overall style and beauty of it.

I can see that.

At first I wondered if this was another view of the town from the last print, but it doesn't appear that they have electricity. :lol:

I preferred Shared Memory and While You Were Sleeping. Shared Memory is really beautiful in person, and the other one is just a cool concept and has a European village-type feel. This one I'm not nuts about. I bet it looks a lot like the Falmouth area of Massachusetts, though, near where he lives. People from that part of the world might appreciate the layout more.

I agree, I like this one better than the last 2. I bought it... still trying to figure out if I LIKE it or if I LOVE it. Probably won't figure that out until I see it in person.

This looks about 90% done to me. I love the way he normally does waves. It would have looked great on this one.
