Wow Jolante this is exceptional work.I love his expression and pose very much. Bravo my friend.
Thanks Anthea…. I have just heard the news; now I am going to have some serious wine!
That is brilliant!
Thanks so much!!!
Excellent portrait, Jolante, congratulations!
Thanks Martha… appreciated!
Thank you very much Shulie.
what expression and expressiveness – ditto everyone else – bravo
Much appreciated John!
fantastic….although that word doesn’t do this superb work justice. The folds of fabric, the stripes, are just wonderful as is his expression. Love it.
Many thanks Lisa; this is the second portrait of three. His Aunt made him sit during a time when he was unsure about what do do with his life.
A gorgeous work. You can see how he is antsy too. :o)
Thanks so much Bunny!
Jolante, this is such beautiful work; as is all of your work. I love your portraits. He looks a bit pensive, contemplating something that matters; maybe even contemplating boredom— that matters too. :)) Your colors are wonderful of course, and the fabric detail is excellent. Good luck with this exhibition!
Thank you Frannie. Much appreciated.
Congratulations on the well deserved a ward Jolante!!! Excellent!!
Thanks Elizabeth – only final 40….
