  52. Hi Sharon, I was particularly taken by the Morning in Edinburgh. I lived in Glasgow, Scotland for 6 years and visited Edinburgh several times. When were you there? I think the most striking thing about the city is the patina of age. No matter where you go you are always conscious of being someplace where hundreds of generations have gone before you. Love your other paintings also but that one evoked many nice memories.

I love your lemon paintings (this one, as well as the one with the turquoise plate) -- it would look great paired with the avocado or pear paintings. I also love your coastal scenes -- I'm going to show the Kauai painting to my husband tonight since that is where we went on our honeymoon. I'd love to know what beach is in this painting...

  126. Wow! Your landscapes are reminiscent of the Group of Seven landscapes except they depict tropical locations. I’m usually more drawn to the realism style such as the Hudson River School landscapes and trompe-l'œil style of paintings, but your still life and landscapes are very stunning. I would love to win the Citrus Blue painting. Thank you so much for giving me a chance to win it.
