    I am totally in awe that your paintings are so small. What size brushes do you use? And your colors are beautiful. The black background really makes the colors pop! Beautiful Work!!!!

    Very very nice. I've got a thing for saltshakers. You have given me my fix for a week. Thanks.

    This is a great composition. Great use of color contrasts and balance. Taking thier size into account makes them even more impressive.

    Wow! I haven't caught up with your work for awhile; you were awesome a year or so ago, you are phenomenal now! Your work just feeds my soul and makes my heart sing with joy. Sumptuous color, movement, elegant and brilliant composition, and every one of these "fragments" a treasure, as rare and ethereal as the finest Ancient Roman glass. Your work is brilliant, thank you for sharing it here on the blog.

    Hi Kim – thanks. I generally use the smallest watercolor brushes available – yes, i work in oil, but it doesn't matter. Winsor & Newton has some really nice, durable small brushes.

    Well thank you TK – you're making me blush. It's funny you should say that – some of the bottles I use are very old, and have a lot of corrosion/patina on them – they've always reminded me of Roman glass.
