Hi Carol.
How in heavens name do you produce such realistic paintings such as this one? It`s absolutely amazing.
All the best Carol.

Hi Victor,
Thanks for your comment! It helps to be a bit obsessive, staring for hours at a small area of a small panel, messing with it till it's right. If I were more skilled, I could do it quicker. But keep in mind, you are looking at a small reproduction. Full size, it's more likely you would see the flaws!
Happy painting!

I have stumbled across your blog while browsing in the "next blog" botton.

Your work is beautiful! I love how you can take ordinary objects and create a great work of art.

Hi Lisa,
Thank you so much for your comment! I hope you will visit my blog again sometime, and that you like what you see. It means a lot to me to have an audience for my work. I live a bit off the beaten path, so the blog is very useful that way.

I just visited your blog. You are a powerful writer and have a lot of important things to say. You may offer encouragement to other people without ever knowing it.
I wish you all the best!
