Really love your hyacinths - beautiful use of colours. Your bow is especially impressive.

Dear Thea, thanks so much for your comments on my paintings. I have only just joined this site and there is so much to look at here and enjoy. I was looking for your work – do you have some pictures here? All the best, Shirley.

Lovely postings. This is my favorite. I love the way you captured the hyacinth with such broad, sure brushstrokes, and the ribbon is great! Welcome to the site! I look forward to seeing more of your paintings. As for your question to Thea, if you click on the gallery page and scroll to the bottom, you will see a box where you can type in the name of the artist you want to see. I think you will not be disappointed. Thea's work is very spectacular, and she's very popular on this site, not just because of her beautiful work, but she's also a very kind and encouraging person!

Dear Seok Yam Chew, Thanks very much for your helpful comments and welcome. I will look for Thea's work, and for yours. I am glad you like the hyacinths painting. It is in South Korea now, as present to some new family members there. Look forward to posting more pictures, and looking at all the work here. Best wishes, Shirley.

I missed this one - absolutely wonderful. Superb colours and a wonderful loose interpretation. My sort of painting!
