Oh I knew immediately this was yours. It's beautiful; has a very Chinese look to it.

Sometimes I just know who's work it is as is the case here! Obviously one of your! ( Iv'e just noticed that Diana said the same thing!) It's a very nice image. Those swirly bits are perfectly positioned and compliment the work nicely.

Another gem, Mia! It's beautiful drawn, as usual, and the way the calligraphy intertwines with your art is so elegant and artistic.

Thank you very, very much, Diana, Louise and Seok. I pass the positive comments on to Harrie. He entered a workshop a few years ago, especially to learn to make those curves. Next to my drawing, he always has a large scrap paper and makes maybe 20 or more curves before drawing the final one: no mistakes allowed!!!

It all works very well !

Thank you very much Louise and Kirstie. As you probably noticed: Harrie's curves form the word "amicus" by turning every letter a quarter below the first one. It has indeed a Chinese look, but it isn't at all!

Just found this gem Mia. I thought a very oriental look which I love. Beautiful work.

Many thanks Carole.

Just had a look at your portfolio and I think these are absolutely lovely and very original. well done!

Thank you very much, Anne, for taking the time to look at my work and for posting a lovely comment. I appreciate!

Lovely skillful use of calligraphy and someting a bit different. Many thanks for your advice with the picture,I would,nt of known otherwise.
