Fire and Ice


Fantastic quote and a smashing portrait to match

Such poetry Michael. Love how you’ve gone to town with this Michael and imparted such philosophical insights.

Great quotes, Michael, and the painting is quite mesmerising.

Fabulous portrait with a story. Great work, Michael.

Like this, and the poetry, Michael

Passion and coolness. - love it!

I love a few lines of verse Mick, especially verses with words full of intentions and dialogue. I would say your former lovers intentions are there to see. Another expressive portrait which you are so good at.

Thanks Fiona. Those were the days.

Very moving! It’s all been said.

Great image and wonderful words.

Michael I love the painting, the Frost and your wonderful humour!

Thanks Katy, Russell, Diane and Lewis.
