My finished painting. This is my favourite painting in ages. Thank you for the opportunity to go out of my comfort zone.

You have inspired me and tried to let me feel, see and experience painting at a different level!  You have a zen-like approach, which I need to learn. I look forward to more classes.                   - Mary W.  'Saltry Bay'
