  • I find these paintings incredibly touching and colourful, I can see a permanence in them similar to that found in old paintings for some reason – busy scenes of robes and fruit and old stuff! Confident that these too will stand the test of time!

  • I agree with Thomas, these are wonderful depictions of life that really seem to be rooted in painting history. I really enjoy the range of emotions in individuals faces.
