Artwork Description

Painted for four girls who died at sea. Watercolors, 12" by 16", (though I had actually wanted to do it larger).

Would it be too melodramatic to say, this bought tears to my eyes?
As a previous writer states, it is a wonderful & fitting tribute!!
I can fully understand that you would liked to have painted it larger. However, there is no loss of sentiment here.
Your expertise is exceptional. It is a palette I like to use, but unfortunately, I am nowhere near this standard. I wish...

It's so sad...they are trying to comfort each other while they are bitterly weeping themselves...shows how close they were...may they rest in peace. Amen

Hello. I just wanted to let you know that I think your work is really nice. I especially like your looser, more spontaneous looking paintings, like your Eros.

That's so pretty. Interesting picture. They look like ghosts, the atmosphere is so sad and pale and spooky. It's a great illustration of the story.

A wonderful tribute, Janet, and lovingly depicted. I especially like the way how you've handled the dresses and wavelets.

Art at its best.
