Thank you. I think I know exactly what you mean. I like your word 'raw'...I once walked into an national exhibit where I had a piece on display and said, "Gee, mine seems to be so crude next to some of this." I am satisfied with my work and get pleasure from it especially this series, but I do understand that it is not as sophisticated and 'refined' as most people like. You are right, too, that the same could be said of some of our most beloved (dead) artists. We will do what we do best...be ourselves, Johanne. Cheers and thanks.

Hello Elzbieta. Here I am again posting another comment well over a year after the first one. All your paintings I really enjoy, yet this particular one grabs me by the heart. I really enjoy your style as I can see and feel the emotion in each and every one your paintings. I read somewhere (in your bio maybe....) that you considered yourself a Folkartist, a style I like, yet I tend to agree with someone who had said that your style was more than Folk. Reason I say this is because of the natural way you paint architectures and details. I am self taught, raw and never took any art lessons, but I can appreciate beautiful art. Even if what you pour your heart into would be Folk, it would not be an insult by any means 'cause you know, if we look at many of Van Gogh's famous pieces and I'm saying this in a good way, I find that some of his work has a Folk feel to them and he was a Master. He had particular techniques, yes, but none can help but notice how his feelings and memories shone through his masterpieces. Keep up your great work Elzbieta. :) -Johanne Monday December 02, 2013.

Elzbieta. I just love your paintings, so reminescent of family stories and childhood memories. And thanks for your appreciation of my painting "A grey day".

Thank you, Rochelle. Family and childhood memories indeed did light and fuel this whole series of small works.

This little girl appears shy. I love the colours you chose; perfect for the theme. Very nice. : ) A vote and a favourite for sure! -Johanne

Lonely too. When I had a one person show at a college gallery one friend said that this painting was his strong favorite, but I have little other feedback. It was a lonely time in my life.
