Hi, Ms. Bell! This is gorgeous -- I am VERY impressed! This is one of the best marble paintings I've seen so far. Great work!

Thanks for the blog link, by the way. I've linked back to yours too, ma'am :)

Kellie Marian Hill said...

I love the play of light with this one, and the glass comes through perfectly- beautiful!

Dean Grey said...

Gwen!

This is expertly done! It was worth the wait!

This almost looks like pastels in certain spots. Very soft and crisp at the same time.

Fantastic job capturing the marbles' luminous qualities!

It reminds me a lot of Alvin Richard's work....and if you've seen some of the things he's painted you'll know that's a real compliment!

Well done, Gwen!
