Madama Butterfly

Madama Butterfly

Love her expression, Sandra.. wonderful work!

Beautiful Sandra, very evocative painting. I like much your figurative and more traditional style, but this one too.

Thank you Heather and was very much a labour of tears....a response to the closing scenes of the opera .

Very emotional Sandra and I absolutely love it!

I love it. We are going to Glyndebourne in November to listen to it and see it. Fabulous picture and full of emotion.

Thank you Satu and Gudrun.

Superb piece, Sandra. Loads of drama and pathos, you've captured the essence and spirit of the character beautifully.

I would like to experiment more in this way. I have had a look at your Gallery..... your work is very lovely ,, varied and interesting.... beautiful colours too.
