  1. those are absolutely beautiful paintings, i really liked to bid on the one with the plum, but it wasn't there anymore:-( greetings from germany

  2. What an honor it is to have greetings sent from Germany. I've sold to several countries... Australia, France, Holland, England, Italy,and Brazil, but not Germany yet. You could be my first. :)
    Thank you for your beautiful comments and your lovely visit.

  3. Love your luscious apples - and in scrolling down, the fig and the pear against the floral background. How talented you are!

  4. Ahhh! Thank you. You are very, very sweet. Thank you, also for the nice visit to my blog.

  5. How beautiful - and how I wish that I could paint! You are so lucky and very talented - I LOVE your work!.
