Education


I'm kinda happy with this one.

This was painted after one of those days when I was contemplating just giving up. How do artists ever make a living at selling art? It certainly isn't the easy path. Too bad the general public thanks we just lay around and paint the occasional picture then ask big bucks for it.

You should be very happy! Unique eye catching composition, the way she is looking to our right draws our eyes to the right as well. Perfect colors and rendering all equal a great painting!

This is exceptional! The girl is adorable and I am wondering at what is going through her mind...

Boy, truer words were never spoken. Would a surgeon take a discount on his fee? Not likely, but he will ask you for a discount on your painting.

This is just lovely, and please don't give up! Your work is wonderful!

Darn right you should be happy with this one - it is beautiful! It is very intriguing - especially her expression. And then the way you use colour, it draws the eye around the painting further. Lovely!
