the Artist my Lovely friend and sis Selma and her lovely husband

perfect combination of the dark evening colouring, catching the right light for the sky and lake, amongst the sandstone village, the light shining down on a peaceful paradise, the lonely palm tree signifying there is beauty and life abound with the lady collecting the water to take back to her family, she has been painted with such love, you even have an orb showing top right, did you notice? The light and painting is full of love

the lady in red is absolutely stunning, I particularly love the way you have painted the shadowing under the hairline, it is a magical painting, I can imagine her reaching up to to allow a ladybird to crawl onto her hand from the gorgeous pink flowers, the colouring is very unique and perfect in style. She also reminds me of being an Irish lady

The Fruit basket Painting, is so lovely and vibrant, the colouring and detail is brilliant, I love the marble effect also, the water melon is so surrealist, its like the melon is lying there very comfortable and doesn’t want to be ate! If you rotate the painting I can almost make out 2 faces, could be a couple you were thinking about at the time

Another wonderful surreal painting, a lovely stone urn or bowl overflowing with an abundance of fruit.  I love the way you paint your leafs, the different twist and turns on each one.  The colouring you have chosen is saying to me – even though there is an abundance of fruit which looks like it is going to wither and die will never be forgotten, the withering leafs are protecting the fruit from going rotten and will always remain beautiful

A beautiful painting of a view of the garden.  I notice you have numbers 2 and 3 in mind here.  The 2 statues having a gorgeous fountain each, the water of life.  The statues even point to heaven.  The 3 pillars are symbolising 3 people and you are the middle pillar.  The circle in the beam above the pillar is symbolising full circle, unity and as one.  Five trees are symbolising your family.  You can almost step into the painting and walk down the path to the garden of paradise

the Nude – These paintings are saying to me, the darkness is in the background and light has come forward, the lady is protected by surrounding pure light, even though the dark is there it cannot touch her.  The swan is a lovely symbol to add, giving the painting grace, innocence, solitude and sincerity.  Even though she stares into the dark she is not afraid, the light and contentment calms her.  The open wings of the swan is saying I am here to protect you

– Portrait of  a Lady – I know this painting, and wow it is exactly like the
Rogier van der weyden 1435-40 its magnificent.  She has been painted with angel qualities, pure in heart and her eyes are saying to me, I am at peace with my soul, full of emotion, like she is saying I have come to terms with my past and I am at peace now

The 2 paintings of the sunflowers.  As you know the wonderful and emotional Van Gough painted sunflowers, this flower has so much meaning. To me the sunflower portends our glorious shining sun, it is a symbol of pure light, food, individualism, health, freedom, abundance, happiness and harmony.  You have painted them overflowing in their comfortable big vase.  All the different colour yellows all individually characterised., not any easy subject to do and you have captured it perfectly
