    I have always relied on my women friends for support, advise, and love.

    This image is a results of an abstract rust image I shot digitally, and as I lived with it I began to see the group of women I cherish around me in it.

    I used the original image and added paint and pastel over it to help the viewer also see and feel their group of friends.

    I treated it for long wear and mounted it in a gallery style.

    This is a very special image to me because of the past and current experiences I have had with my group of wise women.

    A very original piece with a great mood.

    Very relatable. It almost depicts those women that have passed hovering above the living.

    This is a beautiful portrait. For this viewer that lovely face reflects innocence and purity, although that is perhaps not what the artist intended. Great skill is demonstrated with all the elements of this piece - particularly the textures of the hair and the cap. Overall it is an outstanding image.

    Well, one must read the description with this painting. The artist projects such an enthusiastic spirit and I am immediately caught up! This painting surely conveys the fantastical, a place inspired by dreams of other realms -- yet within this world, shrouded in the lore of history and days gone by.

    I wish there was more socially motivated art such as this one about beach erosion; the concept is well symbolized with falling angles and elements. There is color (life) above but a cold bareness below.

    Very colorful meeting of shapes conveys a happy feeling. Looks like a gathering of boats -- as if they are all talking.
