  4. Wow I agree with Niki Hare, what an amazingly clean space, and your easel looks brand new. When I finish a painting my easel is usually stuck fast with paint and needs a chiseling to get it to move again. And like Niki it is usually in my hair and on the windows which I have to scrape clean. I am in awe of your clean painting style.

      Absolutely! My studio has been commented on for being tidy (I don’t think so) but this! Surgeons could use it, by the look of it!

  16. Magnifique travail; belle qualité au niveau transparence, composition, message et gamme chromatique… touts mes félicitations! Les motifs , les répétitions me rappelle la dernière période de Matisse (les découpages..; les tissus, .) quand toutes ses elements de décor devient presque métaphysiques…; mysterieuses.. et subtiles en même temps…

    Congratulations on your success.Your work is beautiful.However what THIS frustrated artist would like to know is How you have been able to come to such success ?I’ve been working at my craft for over 36 years. I’ve had my work on Fine Art America for over a year..supposedly The site to sell work online..and yet no sales for me. My work is Just as good, too. I sell my work online since I cannot afford to store my physical work any longer and supplies are not in my budget living on a fixed income.

    Can you give me some insight and good tips as to how to becomes Just as successful as you ?

    Much respect,
