Gee Deborah: I forgot the C&C thing. I always look for critique and am open to it, that is how we all grow. By the way Deborah since you asked, this painting is on Canson pearl gray. Smooth side.

Re: Me

Great job - your students are a lucky crew to have such a talented teacher to influence their creative endeavors

on another note, if you need a manager to coordinate the 'harem' you are assembling here, I volunteer!

This is great! Funny - I was thinking the same thing as Donna - and I'm so impressed with the perfect foreshortening work.

Re: Me

It's hard not to smile back at your painting! You look so friendly (and have to agree with most, cute to) and relaxed!
I thought it was a watercolor when I opened it. It looks very transparent and luminous. Great work!
