I have never done abstract before. I just picked up my brush and painted. It wasn't meant to be anything. Does anyone want to have a go at interpretation?READ MORE

Hey John,

Thanks for the comment on my portrait of Ave and for clarifying your comment on the cobalt glasses.  I have no idea where the reference for that is, but I do remember there was a big difference in everything about the two glasses.  The angles were entirely different.  Even if I could, I wouldn't change it after all this time, but it's good for future reference.

Hey John,

Thanks for commenting on my cobalt glasses.  I'm always open to constructive advice.  When you said the rim on the smaller glass was a little "out", what did you mean?  Please let me know.

Thank you John for your kind words about The Art Colony! :)

I actually had an English boyfriend about 10 years ago, so I lived in Brighton for 6 months. I also lived in Wales for awhile. I love the UK and definitely plan to visit again someday!
