Thanks Christopher. I am originally from the Detroit area as well. Bloomfield HIlls area. Haven't lived there in years though. Your photography is beautiful and full of energy...going to go back later and give it a closer look. Peace, Sandy

Gorgeous work.

Thanks Bette and Joseph.

Very poignant painting, Sandra - congrats!

Congratulations, this painting touches the heart ! Everyone I know supports the troops, God Bless you.. Cheers..Joe

To the buyer from Santa Barbara California, thank you so much for your purchase. The profits from the sale of this painting will be reinvested into the military community in Battle Creek, Michigan. Your support is greatly appreciated!

Thank you Xueling!

Congratulations on your sale, Sandra! Beautiful watercolor, love the simplicity, well done!!!

Stunning work. Congrats on your win!!

Thanks Kathleen!

Sandy this incredible!!!!

Thanks Amy. I love it too. God really moved my hand over this painting.

Thank you Ayan, I love this work. Proceeds from sales go the Battle Creek Michigan VA.....

Very Good , Sandra . Good work and subject !

Thanks Steven for favoriting this painting.....it is one of my favorites as well, I really felt the hand of God moving through my hand during this process......

Thanks Carolyn, I prayed hard over this rendering before I approached it. I tried and tried to draw the soldier and finally gave up, erased most of it. Squinted at the photo that John provided for me and tried to just capture the important shadow shapes. But as in alot of my work, I try to let go and let God move the brush through me and I think He did a great job on this one. I really appreciate your comments. Blessings, Sandy

A tremendous amount of emotion in what seems to be a simple painting. Love the sketchy look and feel of this; and the energy created by the blowing sands. Conveys the unknowns of war and the fear that surrounds every move. Congrats!

Fantastic image.. Very well done.

This one is outstanding!!! It conveys enough info to tell a story yet leaves enough areas vague for the viewer to read their own story. I like the air or dust all around. Feels like the dry desert. STRONG focal point and atmosphere. Gosh, I could go on and on..... LOVE IT. You could do more in this style, a series.
