Ah! You're too kind Katy! I really enjoyed this painting. One of these days I'll have to do a tutorial on my secret technique.

Yes, they did really love it. Both parents teared up and were speechless. It was great to see and it's always rewarding to see such great emotion. Thanks Nell!

Beautiful work James, most definately my favourite of your excellent gallery. Although I like the ethereal quality of your other pieces, I'm just a sucker for this kind of 'solid' realism.

I guess it's not a surprise when I say that is piece is amazing. In fact, amazing doesn't cut it. I wish I knew your technique. What I would give to look over your shoulder while you painted and learn from you... You are an artistic God!

It's unbelievable how your technique continues to improve beyond it's already considerable bounds. This is truly an amazing piece - the life in those faces is more than lifelike... This is world-class art, James.
