  3. Every one of your pictures tells a story, Nora. I love it, especially the cars and the people! There must be something in the air, 'cause I've been battling with painting the past few days too, but all's well that ends well! Stay inspired! ☺ !

  8. I love the calm blue mood of this painting, I can almost feel that Sunday quietness hanging in the air. What I love about your work is the way you take the ordinary and turn it in to something special. Like Sid in the previous comment I am so appreciative of your comments on my blog.
