Linda. That’s absolutely beautiful.

Great idea - lovely painting, Linda

Now that is something special Linda !

What a brilliant idea...so inspired and beautifully painted! I too am in my 70s and feel as you do about PoL. It's so helpful to hear other artist's opinions.

Amazing idea. You are so creative! I love this. I want an iris dress now.
