Working in traditional mediums,pastels,oil,ceramics.Using these mediums I seek to express my surroundings by weaving a tapestry of colours through my work and seeking the abstract within.
Beautiful tones and highlights. The detail is wonderful, Maria. Congratulations to you and Michel on this outstanding pairing of talents!

A masterful work in pastel, Maria. So beautiful. I love the sensitive face of the male partner in this work. His feelings fill the painting. Your color brings the right touch of warmth to the dramatic scene.
