I like your paintings a lot. You seem to capture the soul as well.

Lovely portraits Janey! I like them a lot. I see you are, like me, inspired by the Pre-Raphaelites!

27 Jan, 2018

 

Thank you Bathgate, I'm pleased you like them and just what I was hoping to capture with the modern portraits...:))

Oh yes Karen, love the era and the artists, the ethereal beauty of their artwork is wonderful...

You're welcome Janey. I would buy one from you if I could. (I like the girl with bunny)

27 Jan, 2018

 

Aww, Bathgate....I hadn't thought I would sell any....i'll pm you.

There is no end to your talents Janey, soooo good.
My fave is little Aleks ?

27 Jan, 2018

 

These are amazing, Janey. I bet if you could have an exhibition they would all sell . . . but how could you part with them?! I’m in awe of your gift.
My fave is Scotney :)

Aw, thank you Dawn and Sheila...it does me good, being focused on something I enjoy. Little Aleks is so full of beans now Dawn, I'm hoping to visit Tazzie in the autumn...fingers crossed..:)) X
You're very kind Sheila...have you visited Scotney? Lovely gardens there too, I must admit I was secretly pleased with the reflections..ha ha..X

28 Jan, 2018

 

Of course you were pleased! I love doing reflections . . you are inspiring me to get out those brushes again . . . x

(No, I haven't been to Scotney Castle - will look it up.)

They are all wonderful,Janey..I do envy anyone who is able to paint ,it really is a gift...if I had to choose,it would be both your lovely girls..followed by Scotney Castle..the reflection is so lovely..oh dear,what a dilemma if I had to choose.I love them all :o) xx

You must Sheila...need to see more of your work too..xx
I spied the plan of your new garden...I hope you are enjoying your new home and the planning of the garden...xx

Goodess Janey, what a talent you have! It baffles me how anybody can do it at all. Lexie is so beautiful!

28 Jan, 2018

 

I'm sure you could Sandra and Stera, and you'd love it! There was a piece in the Weekend mag (Mail on Saturday)
and it was Zara Drummond showing you how to draw to get the proportions right... It was very informative and interesting, and there's loads of schools online.
Yes, I love my girls best....thank you Stera..I'll tell her! :)) xx

You are gifted Janey and it has been wonderful to see a selection of your delightful paintings. There is so much detail in them all.
Thank you.

They are beautiful paintings Janey. You are very talented.

Beautiful paintings.

28 Jan, 2018

 

It will be great to go and see Aleks again - something special to look forward too :-)

Thanks so much everyone,I certainly didn't expect such a positive response it's very kind of you and to enjoy another hobby, when not in the garden....which will be soon we hope!
Today has been really mild, so many birds singing, there is a little wren in my garden and she has been chattering away, very loud and great tits perching on my newly pruned birch tree. Soon be February, then we'll be on our way back to the sun..

It will Dawn, Jim sends little videos of her playing, they've had a very hot and humid summer so far....I think Tazmania will suit them better temperature wise..xx

Janet I am so pleased you put these on for us, you certainly have a talent, personal favourite is your granddaughter Lexie not easy..as the others said you could hold a little exhibition, I am sure you would sell them all, any more?

Thanks so much Dd....it's great to get such feedback, you are always your worst enemy and think no one would
be interested in them...
Can't put anymore on!!
