Thank you so much Monique – you are always a wonderful support!!! :)
Da non credere! Brava oltre ogni immaginazione!!
I’m not quite sure what you said Luca, but I thank you very much for your thoughts anyway!!! :)
That is absolutely amazing Karen! The strawberries are making my mouth water :)
Thank you heaps Carole – we did have yummy feast of strawberries as soon as I was finished taking the reference photos :)
This almost reads like a list of the most challenging things to do in an illustration. Things like the dull film on the blue berries, seeds on the strawberries, texture of bread, gloss on an illustrated ceramic and reflections on a glass like surface. Kudos to you gal for tackling all these subjects and in one work. Impressive.
You are so lovely Jim – this was a real joy to draw. I seem to have spent the last couple of years doing mostly people and animal artworks and it was so fun to tackly a still life and as you say the associated challenges and has left me hungry to do more. You are the master of wonderfully free and bright still lifes!!! :)
Have’t been around for a while Karen…really missed your wonderful work ..I ditto what Jim said..what more can I say but wonderful !!!!
Cathy – so lovely to hear from you and I do hope you have been ok. I don’t get the chance anymore to get on RedBubble nearly as often as I would like and thank you so much for your kind words!!! :)
I don’t think 21 pages is enough Karen, it would take a volume of books to get to this level. Just brilliant. Congrats on your Australian Artist feature, thoroughly deserved.
Gary, you always know just what to say to make a girl feel good – thank you so much for your wonderful comments!!! :)
Totally amazing Karen!!!!!
