    She is lovely. I like your use of color.

    • Hi Sally, Thanks for taking a look and your comments, I think the real water dragon is lovely too! I’ve been looking over your two different sties today, throughout the day, when I had a moment here and there. Great Work! “Lucy Loves Ducky” is such a strong piece, you really captured a moment in the watercolor piece, and it’s full of energy! Your present piece “Stay With Me,” seems influenced by the Surrealists, I enjoy all the texture in it! Have you ever read The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate by Jacqueline Kelly? Thanks again, hope we can keep in touch!
