Great colour! I love it!
Thank you very much, Denis! 🙂
Really like the transition from purple to blue – what a wonderful hue 🙂
Thank you so much! 🙂 🙂
You re welcome!
When I look at this, It reminds me of a little child coloring outside the lines. I envy you the connection with that, and the ability to express it!
Amazing you should say this! That was exactly what I used to do as a child, resulting in being spotted as the “odd one out” [not in a nice way]! It is very hard keeping that thread “clean” through the years… Thank you so much Russ for such a wonderful comment. I’m very flattered!
You should think about posting something about how you come up with your ideas and how you excute your ideas. That way we get to know you a little better,
Thank you, Kathy for your kind advice!
Suits perfectly on a t-shirt
Ah, thank you, Ann! [will do!]
My date of birth to boot 🙂
Absolutely love it Marina!
Thank you so much, Madhu! I’m very happy to hear that!
I heard somewhere that 23 was supposed to be some kind of magic number….dunno about that but this is a magical painting. Another winner.
23 as well as other numbers, yes Bones! However this was just the number the gallery marked my painting with. But I like “magical” very very much. Thank you kind Bones!
Thank you very much.
This is awesome! This is really really good! Can’t really put it into words… 🙂
How did you do the line through it, so that it was purple where the background is purple, but blue where it’s blue?
Ah, thank you so much, Charlie! As I recall, instead of a brush [I’m not fussy about mediums – any item in the vicinity WILL be used!] I used the paint tube straight on the paper. Depending on the pressure you put and the amount of paint you let go from the tube, you get different results.
So does that mean for most of that line you were scraping away the paint already on the canvas, with the paint tube? If so, that’s an interesting technique with very interesting results!
In this case, yes!
Great colors! I like the simplicity of it. The first thing I saw in this painting was Popeye the Sailor Man…without his pipe! Very, very nice!
It must have been that chin huh?! I see the resemblance! Thank you, Fergie!
Vraiment du très beau travail!
Vous êtes très gentil! Merci.
very fancy! I like it!
Thank you, Sharp!
I love these colours. Somehow they give me the impression of textile
They are nice colours for clothes aren’t they?! [like miss USA dress, Pink mentioned below!]. Thank you, Dominique!
Captivating! Thanks for sharing another beautiful work of art! = )
Thank you, Aina for your kindness!

…I still thank you for your kindness my dear Aina!
😊 the pleasure is mine 😊
simplistic yet inviting a view ….
happy to hear that! Thank you Isadora.
The colors are beautiful.
hmm, maybe good colours for your super dog cape, Bongo!
🙂 I see his big nose and big chin…I saw it right away! Great job, Marina! 🙂
Well, spotted Deb! Thank you!
This piece is stunning me to breathlessness. It really resonates with me. And yet again, another piece I wish I could own! Wowee.. Simply gorgeous… LOVE the color. Reminds me of Miss USA’s winning gown, Rhode Island, she’s simply lovely! http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/olivia-culpo-20-year-old-cellist-rhode-island-captures-usa-crown-las-vegas-article-1.1089348
Wow, Pink, what a comment! Thank you so much!
Thumbs up! Besides the colors, I enjoy the border within the borders look.
Ah, thank you Frank. I enjoy making them so I can find ways to …break them. [make sense? I wonder!]
Sure does. Actually, the internal borders provide the setting.
I love oil paints! this is great.
Thanks so much, Cameron.
Has a unique identity! Many thanks.
Thank you, Dilip! This is very nice to hear!
