    Beautiful portrait -I am learning how to work with colors in the face-getting the dimension of the nose is hard for me! I really like the effects of your last painting best.

    I love them all! Your painting expresses so much and your style is so strong and sculptural. And as Andrea says…each one has something for us. I really MUST do some painting again (first to clean out the studio I filled with my father’s stuff – the important “stuff” I couldn’t part with ” then I will get to the paint. The easel is waiting ready in my sunroom though:) And Hiiiiiii to Tinka h555555555555!!:)))

      I should paint too, I have a exhibition in September, and no new work since April…. Tinka purrs happily to your regards. We should come up with a theme and show each other the out come.

    These are simply amazing, Ritva … I love each on it’s own merits. Beautiful and creative …
