Gorgeous painting!"very special and well done with pallette knife

Thank you for your lovely comment, Anne - much appreciated...

What a fabulous painting and I really like how you've used a palette knife

Thank you for your kind comment, Heather...

That's fabulous, Jan, what a joyful piece of work, beautiful and loosely painted.

A very special moment and a lesson for humanity. Lovely work Jan.

Thank you for your nice comments, Thalia and Jim...

Great style and technique!

This is a lovely, touching, moment you have captured perfectly Jan.

Thank you for your encouraging comments, Andrew and Carole...

That was a very special moment and you’ve captured it well. Your skill with the palette knife is amazing!

I echo what others have captured a beautiful moment so well here Jan.

Thank you for your lovely comments, Fiona and Diane...

Came back to this because the content is so powerful and well expressed. This should be an international poster where no words are necessary but it shouts its message to the world. I'm sure God himself would approve.

Many thanks, Jim, for your very generous comment... I also feel that God created us to have connections with each other whatever our background, and we can sometimes have an unexplainable, almost spiritual bond with others because we're created by God and made in His image.

Palette knife with oil on 10 x 14 canvas board.
