I am in awe of how you do your leaves, and the back-light effect.

Yah, Bevs baaaack! And feeling good too I hear! :D (I was just reading your most recent journal) I'm so happy for you, that especially you were able to lie down again, finally!! (after that, I'd probably sleep for a full week straight! LOL )

Take care of yourself, Bev; the immune system is not to be played with. (I'm sure I don't have to tell you that though...I bet it had something to do with why you were feeling so lousy; moreso probably than you ordinarily would have.

Big congrats to you and the fam on you NZ citizenship! :thumbsup::D I think it's especially cool that you have citizenship still in the States as well. Go you, girl! :)

I hope to see some work for you in the near future. :) Have fun Bev;  live, dance!!! And be happy! :love: :hug:!!!

Bev, this is gorgeous.

You know how much I love all your pastel Paintings. The details in the leaves are amazing and the softness and colors of the background are beautiful. It makes the central subject of the leaves really stand out, but still retain a complete connection and unity with the background. I have featured it in group's featured gallery.

hugs Lynn :heart:

You are a master at painting leaves. This and that other leaf painting in your gallery are my favorites. Don't ask me why, maybe it's the color, maybe it's because I love autumn, perhaps it's what you were born to do. lol I'm rambling, but anyway.. I LIKE IT!!
