  5. Hi BJ, I did comment on this but I think my comment got lost somewhere in the massive Google machine!
    You are a very skilled watercolourist. Your work is delicate, vibrant and fresh, yet loose and never overworked. I can't paint flowers, period, but you most certainly can :)

  9. I'm catching up on reading my blogs. My Verizon internet has been a little spotty but is working well today. This is a really nice, fresh, painting. Hollyhocks are not easy and you did them beautifully.
