This is stunning, I really like your clean style, reminds me a little of David Hockney but yours is more detailed and realistic than his work :)

Thank you, Abby.
I looked at David Hockney's site. He is very concerned about his copyright.

I don't paint. How on earth do you do it. So real. Wonderful

I hold a ruler/measure at arm's length and point it at the subject. I read off the length. I multiply it by a scale so that it fits on my board. Then I put a cross on the board. I do that many times. That's how I get the perspective. I learned that in geography lessons at school many years ago.

The depth of the painting is wonderful! The excellent shadow detail in the picture creates a more 3D appearance, and the colors are very inviting!

Wow! That painting is so life-like and beautiful. Great talent. You are truly blessed. (Not that I'm diminishing the time you put into learning your skill-set.)
