  2. Excellent painting Joan. I'm doing a still life right now...I've never done a floral piece so I'm having a difficult time with it! I won't give up.. You are my inspiration with this beautiful piece!

  7. This is lovely Joan. I love the flowers of course but I also love the way you have rendered the vase. The highlights give the vase volume and the colour and tone of the cast shadow is perfect!
