Hi Nicola, thanks for your visiting of my profile! I am happy to get to know your artwork, the gouache paintings especially, since there's a very sharp and beautiful force in them. And gouache is not easy to work with! When will you display some more of your paintings in your portfolio?
Anyway, good luck to you! Natacha

Thank you for your kind words. (I only just got back to the 'real' world today, been on holiday :) The true purpose of my gift? Is a talent not something we are given to keep us happy and well fed? I would love to think there is more, but I think believing that is the reason for a future midlife crisis. (So encourage away ;p ) :)
