That painting is beautiful...wonderful job! Do you have a website with others that you've painted? Also, do you intend to have prints made...? Keep us posted. Thanks for sharing, you really are talented.

That's a great painting! I'd be intested also if you have a website or prints that become available.

My Personal page with more art

I have been considering having some prints made of some of my work, but wasn't sure if they'd sell. Perhaps in the near future it'll happen. If it's okay with Jason, I'll let everyone know if it happens.

Thanks for the positive feedback.

gee, and Best Fishing Buddy just asked me what might be appropriate for Mother's Day...
yes, prints might be worthwhile. how much of a hassle are they?

That is a great painting. I liked everything from your website, too. Thanks for sharing. I've been looking half-heartedly for three photos or paintings to display in my house. One each of Brown, Brook and Rainbow with their latin names. I have not seen much that I've liked and I'm interested in seeing photos and paintings in both color and black and white, but it would be important to be of the same series or of the same artist. Has anyone seen anything like this that I could peruse for purchase.
