    It’s good that this sad of a subject is painted so beautifully. If it were not, it would be hard to look. You want people to look, study, stare, look some more, find the details, etc. etc. The longer you can hold them, the more you can impact their thoughts. I’m so impressed with what I’m seeing. Thanks; I’m honored you’ve chosen Solo Exhibition as one of the groups for your work. —Frannie
