I thought I would show you some of my best friends work, who has no internet presence at all. This one was awarded AAA by the judges, and she had all her paintings accepted. I wish her talent would rub off on me a bit!

Apologies for terrible reflections on photos.

And my ducks came home again, as did the two boat paintings. I have to stop listening to other people and trust my own judgement. Lesson learned this time.

The style of your charcoals and oil wash paintings is related to your friend's.you have every bit as much talent. Your portraits and particularly your full figurative paintings are your cup of tea, but I really liked the folks and their dog relaxing on the beach. Your scultures do stand out amongst all the ceramics. They look very special. They show your hard work.Bravo.
