Unless I guess wrong, this one's all about composition, and it's a beaut!! Jerry's gonna love this :D

Very nice Jim, this one makes you quietly contemplate it for a long time.

the twist from crossed legs from tucked in hand from leaning body and most of all the glance is a spiral of adoration.

Thanks, Mark and Jerry! I was trying to make this soft, moody and contemplative. And quiet too. Jim

Another great one! I wish I could watch how you mix your paints and go across the canvas. Your paintings all that sense to them.

Thanks, Scott! I am starting to "get it" and I think that after a few more I will be happy with what is happening. Come by sometime, these all look much better first hand! Jim
