They look a lot warmer than painting in the wind and rain!! You must have your own sun shining inside. I like them but keep looking for a nude. xxxx

Hello Billie,
Found your page while visiting Chooks.
Love your work, it's really vibrant and Passionate!
I have a big space on one of my walls that would look so much nicer with one of your paintings on.
I will be sure to return to see more of your work!

Take care

Landscapes indeed - I can see where your going with these. 'Landfig', slowly the landscapes will merge into the reclining figure studies, a pleasant blend of the land forming the outline of the figures. A bit like fine wine and a cigar or a great meal with pleasant company or a very hot night and .........

Hello Billie,

Thanks for your comment.
I know what you mean about articulating how you feel etc, but I think we should leave that one to the critics and the rest of us can just get on with creating whatever art we feel like creating!
I was only commenting on a debate I saw that made me laugh more than anything else.

I think it was Frank Zappa who said he never trusted anyone whose only connection to art/music was to talk about it!

Take care
