Women Painting Women, an honor to be included!

I am surprised and delighted that my pastel "Chains" is included in this stunning blog offered by my talented friend Sadie Valeri: Women Painting Women When I scroll down the page of this blog, I see works by many artists known to me who I have greatly admired, and some painters who are new to me that I'm excited to discover. I'm truly honored and a bit dumbfounded to be among such talent, compiled by an artist who's work I so respect.

Thank you Sadie!

Even in the breath-taking collection of portraits on the WPW blog, this image stands out. I find your medium choices and emphasis on portraiture really appealing. Beautiful work.

Hey Alice!!!
I'm so excited to see your blog!

Wow, congratulations on the inclusion in the "Woman Painting Woman" blog! What an exceptional group of woman artists.

Oh my Candace - music to my ears! I tend to be unsure of myself, perhaps because my work DOES look so different than most everything I've seen. Most likely a result of being self-taught. I like to think it's a strength, but every once in a while I get wracked by self-doubt. I suppose it's a good thing in the long run,it keeps me moving forward.

One wonderful thing about the inclusion, I've been connecting here with many talented artists like you that I might not have found otherwise!

Thanks also to you, Karen,for your kind comments. I'm still amazed at being in such good company! :)
