  9. What a beautiful loose drawing. I always loved the struggle of life drawing, but every different class I attended for a few years in our area (and don't travel far) featured rather ancient gone-to-seed men, always the same ones. There's a limit to the number of times one wants to draw a gentleman with bosoms larger than mine! So I do enjoy your lovely paintings, Thank you.

  11. Salut Nora. Je veux te remercier ta visite à mon Blog. Tes travaux sont vraiment charmants. Tu réussis leur donner une atmosphère spéciale. Je pense que la façon dont tu emploies les couleurs, d'une grande pureté, les fait très vibrants. Cette portrait, plein de vie, est fabuleux.
