Yes I know what you mean Dorothy. Just to have a tiny fragment of that talent and ability would be great ! I've never been to a proper gallery but I remember as a youngster standing and staring at the portraits hanging in Longleat house, (just down the road from me), and being awestruck. Still am... haha.
Hi Dorthy, thank you for your comment on my caged drawing. I hope my country & the world can get so sanity about itself before it is too late. I think trump is the cause of a lot of it. Hopefully he will be out & in jail after the next election, if not before.
I just viewed your lovely gallery. I really like all of it, especially the sunshine in your landscapes & flowers. quite lovely work
Thank you so much for your comments, my output of art is always very low in summer due to the fact I love gardening as much as art. With limited sunshine in UK so I try to spend much time as possible out there.
Thanks Dorothy. My throry is that I think it must have been the fashion to paint people in the same style at that time. If you go back a bit further to Carravaggios time the people looked relatively normal. Only a theory though.
