I just knew this was one of yours, Carole. Excellent work, as usual.

Stunning! Love the addition of gold leaf.

Alan, Louise and Kirstie, thanks so much for your comments, really appreciate it.

I was going to say what Alan has already said! This is just stunning.

WOW Carole, this is stunning! Beautiful depth of colour and the gold leaf is a magical touch.

Its just stunning I love it!!!!

I think we can all agree on "stunning"! I'm not normally too keen on using gold-leaf in paintings, because the tendency is to use it where it doesn't serve much of a useful purpose and without precision: but you've put it exactly where you wanted it, so that it enhances the painting rather than being the whole point of it. Beautifully judged and accomplished.

Oh yes, Carole, this is absolutely great. All the above are right: this is stunning!

Carole you have really pulled out all the stops here - this is something else............

This is simply gorgeous, Carole! You've taken an oft-painted subject and made it absolutely magnificent - I love the seamless ebb and flow of colors throughout the painting, and you've managed the layers without compromising on the luminosity. It's a real winner!

Beautiful! Great colours and delicate touch.

Utterly beautiful, a striking composition and feeling of depth, wonderful colour!

This is really so well painted Carole, stunning is the best description I can think of, a really nice piece.

You are all very kind, I really appreciate your time to comment, thank you.

Beautifully executed..the gold leaf works a treat!
