  3. every picture is an absolute dream if l was younger l would like to go to an art school to learn to be able to paint somewhere as near as good as what l have just seen what a joy to behold

  4. I tried painting the sad looking blonde one; but…. I like yours better (LOL)

  5. Great paintings and style. Beautiful colors. Having said that…are female faces all the rage now? Or what? I mean if that’s all you do, then cool. I guess. But branch out. Try some landscapes. A cityscape here and there. Still life maybe? Something to break the monotony.
