Sarah, this is really compelling and fresh feeling! You have a lot of confidence in your brushwork that I admire.

Sarah,
I like your quick study very much. If this is any indication of the level of work done in your open studios, then how I wish I could attend...it is so difficult to find a studio that offers what you offer here in my area.
Please post more works here, would love to see more.

Sarah:

Actually, my wife's parents live in Arlington, and we get out there about twice a year. If I can arrange time, I would love to come draw when we are out next if you are having a session.
