My supportive community -- I am so grateful

When I was working on my Wonder Water series of people against
their favourite ocean settings, Solana Cain, featured in the painting
above sent me several photos of herself, for reference and 
recommended friends, who sent me photos too.  As an artist
herself, she got what I was going for and I had a super time
painting her. She is so kind. A talented photographer,
she now works photo editing for our top national newspaper.

So I was delighted when her mother bought this painting, 
and the portrait of her sister, for their birthdays about a 
year ago.  The day she came to get them, and was so 
pleased,  telling me that I'd done such a good job, stands out
in my mind as one of the happiest days in my life 
as an artist.
