Great job, Donna! You should be proud of yourself with this work of art. It sets a certain mood with the stoic faces, and the grayish moody color pallet. With just enough small amounts of brighter colors to set the balance. Your so talented with the portrait works, girl. I so hope this band puts this painting on their CD cover, too. You deserve very high marks for it. 5x*****5x*****50x******! Absolutely love it.

Donna-Marie, you are obviously a very talented young artist, and if this is your standard now...then watch out art-world...5* and more.xx

You ought to have an exhibition in your city/town..find a popular place & beg for some free space...your young and pretty, so it should be easy!! Then invite everyone you know & lots of folk you don't ..invite local press too, for some free publicity...honest, that's how I started.xxxx

fabulous painting, Donna-Marie..very well done. I am struggling at the same level as you, concerning how to move forward. However, I did put some of my art in a local Fair, and did really good there. Then, I go a call from a Bank in our town, asking if I would like to show and sell some of my art at their booth this Aug., so now I have to find out if and what rules will apply...but it is working out at a steady pace...If you open one door, another will open soon. Your artwork is great! 5* Sincerely, Doris

in answer to your reply:

Hey Donna, I was probably turned down twenty or so times, before I struck it lucky!!!! Also if there are any hip/on the pulse restaurants or bars near you, you could ask if your work could be hung for a while...(not forgetting to add your contact details)...I have sold so many this way...honest!!!, but one thing.....never give up :)))xx Thank you for your gorgeous comments on my work.xx :D
