The high rising buildings that you see in the distance aren't very nice when you're next to them, but seen from further away, with the evening sun shining on them, they can have a certain abstract beauty, because you actually only see the colours.

I love the painting, and notice that this is true in town too. Abstracted and lit by strong sunlight buildings transform. Of course when talent like yours lights them they are elevated to a whole new level.

Thanks to you, too, Olha. That's what you do all the time!
