    Beautiful, absolutely beautiful. I find your talent so insping Ethel. I love the blue and the way you’ve used the other colours. They lend a dreamy warmth. I can imagine this warrior, as a visitation, lending his wisdom to an open seeking heart.

    Ethel, this is beautiful! There is much power and strength in this portrait, but also a gentleness about it that makes this pastel very appealing. Just lovely! ~ Julie xoxox

  8. Ethel, I like the way you included the night sky in this drawing. For me, it is a reference to the navigational skills of polynesian people. Without their ability to read the night sky, the Maori would not have arrived in New Zealand. This is a gorgeous drawing.
