"Brilliant capturing of skin color, mood, and - as always, it seems, in your work - what the eyes have to tell us.  Wonderful."

Carla Cryptic replied to Mike Fone's discussion The Rug Maker in the group Portraits
"Great work - very old masters.  You have wonderful technique but, more than that, I like your choice of subject and what you convey through the eyes."
