Astrid - I love your style of painting , I love your palet knife work, you have used a limited range of colours and it makes a very harmonius painting.  You are doing good work..   I am a very senior person too who wishes she had found Richards website  a few years ago.

The energy in the figures is exciting and purposeful. The real spirit of this painting comes out form me when I view if from a distance. The unsettled weather and waves. I like the way the sail edge is lost and found in the sky.

Astrid, I am right there with you. My family had other ideas for me to. But God brought circumstances into my life that have allowed me to take my passion now, late in life. I think you are doing great! Good eye for color and composition. Great paint handling. You have a good feel for it. I like your other painting "Embrace" also. I like the composition there. I am not an expert in abstract painting, I think more like a realist. But I know good design when I see it. There is a market for your art.  I see abstract works everywhere in corporate offices, hotels, inns and restaurants. If you have a sizeable body of work, you might want to locate a reputable artist rep to see if they can help you, I look forward to seeing more of your posts.

All the best,
