"I liked it alot. Id like some of mine to be judged but I mainly just do faces and bridges and trees. Oh well shes good."

"I don't really like these - they seem cold and calculated. Still we can't all like the same thing eh?"


"Adore the colors and the images I expected the website to be likewise, but I must say, it is horrid! Dear Vera, learn some simple HTML or so and make your site as eye pleasing as your paintings!"

"Interesting and impressive work."

"Her roots lie deep in the expressionists movement. Cezanne exemplified by overlapping planes of color and reality. Picasso by primitive Iberian mask like faces and angular cubist modeling. She shows her Russian heritage (for the most part) with stark city scapes inhabited by lonesome ladies."

"More, Vera, more. Thank you for insight, depth,color, beauty & situational awareness!"
