Jessie and I recently watched Ken Burns' and Lynn Novik's excellent "Vietnam War" documentary on PBS. It was a gut-wrenching series and more than a little bit surreal to think how I wouldn't have Jess by my side if not for the war. Throughout the series I was struck by the incredible beauty of the Vietnamese countryside. It was that ethereal beauty which inspired this latest render, "Peace in the Valley".

I love this work. It happens that the last few weeks have been rather shattering, and this beautiful image -- along with Remembrance -- has been balm for my soul.

Thank you for what you do for all of us, Ryan.

This artwork gives me hope for the future. As a education and life management consultant, when talking with people who seemingly do not see the horizon in the absence of hope, I say, 'look to the East, then to the west, the sun rises and sets'

This artwork reminds me of the breathtaking sunrises and sunsets that veil our mountain town and valley. As well, provides me a window of tranquil feeling on the morning of my discharge and post-op from the hospital after my knee replacement surgery Tuesday.

"Grandest of Spectacles"
No deep words or thoughts here, bloody excellent job on this one, I could not imagine improving on this in any way. Jaw dropping view as one gets looking from the rim of Earth's Grand Canyon....

Not only is this a peaceful, beautiful scene, but its simplicity makes it perfect as a desktop background. My icons often get lost in some of the others (although I use them anyway), but I appreciate having some pictures that do not lose my icons. As someone that has been a part of your journey for many years, I see growth, maturity and a great deal of genius in your work!

"Just wow."
I love all your works, but every once in a while one really strikes my heart. This is one of them. It's just so overwhelmingly beautiful.

"Great Landscape"
very nice, as realistic as they come. If I didn't know any better I would swear it was an actual photo.
