    Thank you for your wonderful responses. I truly really love the beauty of your style. I can honestly say that I’ve never liked still lifes. They drive me mental lol. But you, you have such a gift of composition, pattern and complimentary colour that I’m left fascinated and intrigued…….what a wonder!!!! Will definitely love to see what you do next

  • thanks tahnja, still life has always been underated as a subject,but ive always been drawn to it and its possibilities of expressing something,i left it behind for a number of years. im excited to see what i come up with in this next phase
