    Hey Squishy, your work on bikes is special. You sure have the talent to do a portrait, probably just need to see one through to the end. Thanks for the compliments

    Thanks John, very kind of you, but I don't have the feel for it, but who knows maybe it will click one day.

    I t`s fantastic I think. It looks like you`ve just pulled a guy in off the street who`s fell on hard times , sat him down, and painted away for a few hours ,then slipped him a few bucks and a hot meal in gratitude for him sitting. He looks happy enough about the whole thing anyway. :)

    Hey Rincewind, with a review like that, I think that you should write paperbacks and I'll airbrush the cover??? Thank you

    Thank you Frowan, I am not a fast painter, it probably took around 40 hours. I almost spend as much time studying my reference as I do painting.
