another great work!
Thank you so much Preston : )
really wonderful Paul!
Oh, you’re so kind – thank you! Hope you are well : )
wow… (I actually said it out loud as well) this is both unusual and strangely familiar at the same time.. fantastic imagery, very lyrical
actually the more I gaze through the picture, the middle becomes like a port hole, as though the area around is a ship, I don’t know how you made it so that it looks like I could climb through the hole… hahaha
I love these metaphors.. but more than that.. i love this piece as it speaks to me
I couldn’t ask for a comment more wonderful than that. I’m so glad you appreciate this and I thank you immensely for your support : )
you are so damn special……… this work just makes me love you all the more………. it’s wonderful paul…. and so uniquely you……………..xox………b
Aw, I feel the love butch. Such a lovely comment. So glad you like this and thank you (as always) for your ongoing kindness and support xoxox
I feel as though instead of looking out of a porthole into the water…this scene is in reverse….I’m looking into a ship; and into a different world…
Thank you Lisa, I really appreciate this comment : )
This is great Paul – it’s very historic and one can feel a whole generation of simple happy fun here….i.e. no complexity like today!
I know what you mean David, thank you endlessly for the kind comment. Hope you’re well : )
I wonder if that port hole is open .. i want to reach through and tap her on the shoulder .. i like that this picture is a few different things .. gosh you’re an amazing illustrator .. so sassy and endearing .. x
