  7. Hi Judy, This is beautiful - I find work loosens up if you don't sketch them in first, do you find that? This painting really sings ♪♫♪♪ 'Spring' ♪♫♪♪

  19. Hello Judy - I've just come across via Sandra's link. I just love the innocent forsythia - first shrub to wake, it can only see the clear goodness of Spring ahead. All captured in your lovely picture.

    I've just become a follower, I hope you don't mind.

    Pat & I love Holland... it's where my art first took off!

  28. Thank you Jarnie, Irina and Maga!
    Maga, in real life the 3D is much better, on the pc screen it looks flatter.
