  1. Hmmm ... John Ruskin sounds like a bit of a grump.
    Your lilies are gorgeous! The painting is so fresh - love it!

  2. Oh wow! That is such a beautiful floral piece! It is like a storybook of thoughts and ideas that spark my imagination. Your work is always very creative and this piece conveys a personality in the way you used the colors and lines so effectively. :)

  3. Dear Kathryn, Katherine and Maria, many thanks to you all for your kind words on this piece. I really appreciate your input. You artists all rock! Thanks again. :-D

  4. Really lovely Sandy and you always have great line quality too. Did I mention your perfect quotations to match the feeling tone of your works?... always thoughtful and well done!
