I guess I like to show how things become almost something else with age, they get dents, bruises, creases and discolourations. But it also makes it so much more interesting and lovely. I guess it’s the same with people.

    Wow! What a painting! Even though I saw you painting this… still looks so life-like that it looks like a photo! I am stunned at how beautiful, detailed and how real this looks. The metal is cool, smooth, rusty and perfectly lit and the wood has just the right texture and colour. The light is perfect, just look at the light on the screws and the rust! It’s amazing….I think you are just the best!

  • Don’t be silly Sal, honey, you are the best! xx
    Thank you anyway, this is the best comment ever, thank you sweety!! xx
