  4. Dean - I have just added myself as a follower to your blog, as I see I have missed out on some beautiful work. I love the light in the pears down below, you've already tackled the sushi...amazing, and this little guy here, all legs and knees, but captured with such beautiful light...I'll be back for sure.

  6. I'm quite impressed with how you captured so much with a few "just right" strokes.

    Wonderful little painting (and I'm a horsey person, so I'm fussy about equine art) ;-)

  15. Hi Dean
    This is a lovely composition. I love the lights against darks...so clever. Much tenderness in the characters, especially the fawn.
    Your work is inspiring.
    Kind Regards
