Linda Anderson - Over 30 days ago
How beautiful is this?! Amazing work
Janet Bradley - Over 30 days ago
Thank you Linda, much appreciation!
Steve Sweeney - Over 30 days ago
Midas's first name... hmm. I take your point but you gotta keep pitching.
Janet Bradley - Over 30 days ago
Help me out Steve!
Tracy Hazen - Over 30 days ago
Very nice!
Janet Bradley - Over 30 days ago
Hi Tracy, thank you so much!
Steve Sweeney - Over 30 days ago
Hey Janet,
To me, Midas was a big fish in a small pond. Outside the pond no one knew who he was. I thought the point of your comment about not knowing his first name reflected that. Fame is a relative truth. Even if folks don't know who you are but the success of your (our) work demands that people do know who you are then you've got to keep pitching to get known. And let's not forget... it's a labour of love.
Janet Bradley - Over 30 days ago
Very nice explanation and metaphor Steve! Thanks for clarify word sage!
Cirrelia Thaxton - Over 30 days ago
I just adore Steve's affirmations...

Hahaha, you too, Steve, did you know Dave is a writer also?
Steve Sweeney - Over 30 days ago
No I did not. But Dave, now that I know, I'll check out your stuff to see if you are as weird as me.
David Shepherd - Over 30 days ago
Hahahaaaaa...weird, Steve? Me? No, never...it's these gremlins in my head, they're the weird ones, you mark my words! Never leave me alone, night and day just yak,yak,yak and...oops, was I rambling a bit! lolol
Janet Bradley - Over 30 days ago
Steve, yes his work is enticing as yours, full of humor and unknown sometimes horrific twists. Weird? You should read his Obsession Possession.......then gather an opinion!
David Shepherd - Over 30 days ago

Author/Illustrator, Tosh Baker - Over 30 days ago
I love this one Cowgirl. Such a peaceful feeling to it.
Ingrid Zacharias - Over 30 days ago
This little girl reminds me of Paris Jackson. There's sadness in her eyes, but also strength. The way you handled the mixing of the colours to create the creases in her dress are amazing.
Janet Bradley - Over 30 days ago
Thank you dear, yes you got that right , she did have a forlorn mystery!
Ingrid Zacharias - Over 30 days ago
Yes, she does. :)

Eva Nemec - Over 30 days ago
Good god....I literally have no words besides that I dig her eyebrows.....

This is just TOO good!
Joshua Yongo - Over 30 days ago
Great piece! Do you mind sharing your great colored pencil blending technique?
Janet Bradley - Over 30 days ago
Thanks Joshua! Not at all. The blending technique with colored pencil is basically a different stroke for every color, I do not over lap in shading as I do with graphite. And also I try not to over work the surface and break the hair on the paper....I hope this works for you, your skill is sensitive and great....cheers
John Powers - Over 30 days ago
Beauteous!!
Janet Bradley - Over 30 days ago
Thank you John, as is your fanciful art!
Valerie Bouthyette - Over 30 days ago
Beautiful artwork
Marco Lara - Over 30 days ago
Indeed it is a nice pose, I think that will make it even a more valuable piece, I consider you are an ARTIST. a lot of us can draw and paint extremely well but unfortunately it doesn't make us quite Artists, due to the lacking of imagination,
I think a great imagination factor will make the difference. To create something new. He, He..
I'm personally working on that, see what happens. Say keep in touch. With your great use of verbal expressionism.
