    A cappella

    This is another fine piece from a great artist. Valeria, 'the pianist' is such a beautiful piece and this has that same moving quality with the subject captivating the viewer. Great job.

    This is amazing and beautiful. Truly specific instead of generic tree treatment, with a perfect focal point with the light. Composition is also excellent, overall intriguing, moving and so skillfully done. this is a winner.

    Cave Springs

    This is a beautiful piece, the treatment of the grass, sky, color choice for the mountains and the shade vs sun areas, all is excellent. The hay bale arrangement is also wonderful.
