  • Hey! Great work! Love the texture and simplicity.

    WOOT!

  • Nan Baker

    Wow. Wow. Wow. Wow. I love each of them.

    You know I love that painting of Raj. I think the painting of your dad and his bro turned out really well also.

  • Nola

    Very inspiring work. Really love them all.

  • Barb

    Continue to enjoy your very distinctive style! If you moved back to Steamboat, it would be great to have you in our gallery!

  • Sara, so proud of you…you’re work deserves so much recognition! I love them all.

  • I agree with Lavurn above, the simplicity is great, very refreshing! Really nice work. I think one of the tricky things as a painter, is to concentrate on the subject/concept and not the style, and to get the fine balance between simplicity and detail, but its tackled perfectly in these 🙂

    Ahhhhhh PUPPIES DANCING!!! Enough said. Love love love.
