Those eyes, (and all the features really) are nicely formed and solid ~pulling your strength out from your under-weatherness.
Alice, you've been making up for my lack of painting! Wow! Your recent work is just wonderful. Purple Pear, Crazy Daisies, Seduction, Gesundheit, and Golden Pair all display a confidence in your brushstrokes and risk with color that makes them lively and engaging. Your daily discipline is paying off big time. Congratulations!(I also like your furry fan club.)
