"Lost In a Dream" - 9" x 12"
















I cannot believe how long it takes me to do a painting. I was sure I'd have these finished weeks ago. It's not that I haven't been working on them, the problem is getting them exactly like I want them. Anyway, hooray! I've finished two! I guess you can tell I love the dramatic.

I will not be offering these on Ebay. I plan to enter this one in a competition, the rest of them, when finished, will be going to Southwest Gallery.

These two pieces are truly amazing. There is an element of surprise in both of them in the composition and the colors. They are at par with your colored pencil work. Bravo!

Thank you - thank you - thank you - thank you - Alvin. I have desperately been trying to get to that level. I had all the confidence in the world when it came to colored pencil but I have felt almost embarrassed to "reveal" what I've done in oil. I must admit the more I paint the more my confidence level rises, but it's still nice to have someone tell you.

You are such a source of inspiration and hope :) your work is perfect, and I love the light and shadow dance in your piece :) As always you amaze me :) Well done and good luck in the competition :)

You are a Fine Art Master in both Colored Pencil and Oil :) You made it :)
