    Once again you did it!!! This is fabulous, Fran….& to think you were so worried…..geesh! If I could paint like this I would think that I’d arrived!!!

  • Thanks so much, Marsha. If you had seen the photo I had to work from you’d know why! And I think you HAVE arrived. I love all your work!

    Great work Fran, I appreciate how difficult it can be to work from bad photo’s for a commission. Been there, done that, got the T Shirt and read the Book! Lol

  • Thanks Jorja, that one was so difficult!
