Congratulations! Well deserved! I love all those bows!! And the colors are gorgeous.

I had to mention you, with your link, in my post today, because I painted a ribbon (not successfully, I admit) and yours are so beautifully painted. I admire your work!

All these tones of blue make a really compelling piece. You really master the art of the ribbon, if i may say so. BRAVO, Helen

PS - blogger has a comment setting where you comment and can still see the post - I changed my blog to this a few months ago. I love it because you can see the picture when you are commenting, which is very helpful when referring to a detail!

Dearest Karen,

Through Sande I landed here and I am truly impressed by your 'like-real' GIFT WRAPPED oil paintings!
Very talented and it is something that would blend into any style interior...
Wish you lots of success and sunny greetings from Georgia,
