I absolutely love your work. When I was attending St. Francis College in Loretto Pa in 1975-1979, the art professor there had a style very much like yours. I cannot for the life of me remember his name. I remember he gave a demonstration of his work one class and it came out so beautifully that he signed it and said he would probably sell it. One of the guys in the class remarked, "you mean you're going to get a couple hundred bucks for something that took you 15 minutes to make?" And he said, "Yes, but it took me YEARS to get it right." *LOL* I tip my hat to you.
The end is nothing, the journey is all.

Annie !
My former art life was in clay. I used to get the same question."How long did it take you to learn to do this?"
Drove me nuts for years until I had a come-back "30 years "
These are some assembled pieces from the paintings I did.
