Thank you for the kind words about my recent blog; I am so sorry to have heard what you have been through and I wish your hand to help you heal! Your work is very beautiful and I love the texture and the light/reflection you show in your work… the man's mouth is great! And I love the most recent work, of the docks is brilliant with color and charm. Go YOU, go and fight back and reclaim the purity of your space and your safety. Mourn those precious items that were taken from you and rejoice in the life that exists. :)

It is a mis of ultra marine blue, burnt umber and violet acrylic over a W/C underpainting of ultramarine and sepia. the W/C wouldn't get dark as I wanted so I overpainted it with the acrylics. So happy you like it. :o)
Thanks so much for the comment on my piece. That's a big favorite of mine - it is inspired by the poem Ode to Walt Whitman by Federico García Lorca - so when people enjoy it, it really makes my day! So thank you!!!
