  1. You produced such super paintings. I'm glad you have a show for them. I wish you great success. I havejust spent a three day workshop on values with Jill Carver. I'm hoping it will make my painting stronger. Your values are always just right, I think that is so very important.

    1. Hi Doug, thanks for the kind words. I hope too the show goes well. Happy anyway to have my work there. Thanks for saying my values are right, although I don't think they always are! But it's true that it is I think the most important thing in figurative painting and I only really discovered that a couple of years ago and it changed my way of seeing. I'm sure what you have learned will help you in the future. Happy painting!

  2. A beautiful painting! Your fracturing technique makes the painting so interesting. Also

    enjoyed seeing what others have done with it. I'm loving your blog!
