Merry Christmas to the POL team and my Fellow Artists.

I would like to thank those who took the time and effort to support me since I joined POL earlier this year, your comments have always been welcomed and it has been a pleasure to feel welcomed and part of this group. Thank you so much.

Another cracker Alan. I'd also like to thank you for your comments in my short period on here. Merry Christmas and a happy new year.

A happy Christmas to you, Alan - and Lily, of course - and thanks for another typically rich oil painting.

Merry Christmas Alan, doesn't look like we'll be getting any of the snow you've portrayed so well here though.

Merry Christmas, Alan! A nice landscape greeting!

Happy Christmas, Alan, a lovely snow scene. (I'd also like to thank you for your encouraging comments on my work since I joined POL earlier this year).

A very Happy Christmas to you too Alan!

A lovely study Alan. Thank you for all your kind comments on my paintings recently. It is so nice being part of the POL family isn't it? I hope you have a very happy Christmas.

Merry Christmas to you too Alan, it's been a delight to see your paintings in the gallery, you're a very welcome addition to the POL family. Thank you for your kind comments on my work too.

Lovely colours in the foreground, a nice winter scene, on which note I would like to wish you a very happy Christmas, and also to thank you for your words of encouragement, as for your sentiments on the P.O.L. Group....Dito.

Beautifully atmospheric. Very appealing to my emotions.

Excellent Alan, thank you very much and best wishes to you also.

Alan this is exceptional really beautiful

Well, since you never give me any compliments, you&#39;re certainly not getting any from me for this, &#39; Sunday painting &#39; rubbish !

Oh, what a nasty comments this is, this is not done. <br />This is a very strong, atmospheric work in my opinion, Alan.<br />My best wishes to you too :) Mia

Mr Stephenson&#39;s comment is spiteful and ignorant in equal measure - this sort of remark has no place on any online gallery, and I for one have had enough of it.

And a very late Merry Christmas to you Alan. May you enjoy a peaceful and happy 2016.

Just getting back into P O L after family onslaught over the Christmas period. and selling houses and worrying about nowhere to live. <br />This is lovely and thank you for happy greetings. <br />Look forward to seeing more of your super work in the New Year . S X <br />
