Hello Gretchen,
I think your nudes are great! Specially this one. Congratulations. I am working myself on one nude and your work is inspiring me.
Best wishes,

This series is wonderful--I love all the colors and patterns. In this one the light on the belly and shadow on the hip are especially lovely!

Thanks everybody! This series has been fun and the original French Postcards from which I am working to do these colorized versions are so inspirational. I really appreciate all the positive feedback - so THANKS!
