Jane this was so exciting to watch develop. It is so refreshing to see an artist paint a subject in a completely different apporach with unique colours. If everyone had painted this portrait it could have looked identical following the original colours but here you shone as a very incredible and intelligent artist making a very unusual coloir combination create a striking effect. I adore how you work and can't wait to see what follows this year. I feel you have a very exciting time ahead of you and I am thrilled to have met you and come to know you as the caring individual you are,

See you sooner than you think!

Jean

This is absolutely beautiful. Detail and suggestion combined.

I hope you made it home before the volcano dust stopped air traffic out of England?
