Jolante Hesse replied:

Many thanks Subrata - I really appreciate your observation.

Like this one, you do such wonderful portraits. It takes an artist and a very sensitive, insightful person to see and then depict the essence and character of a person beyond the color of their skin, or other any other limiting misconception many still have of their brothers and sisters in humanity.

Jolante Hesse replied:

Hartmut, this is so wonderful to hear. I try very hard to this.

I love the warmth and inocent expression.. Great work Jolante!

Jolante Hesse replied:

Thank you very, very much Becky!

Jolante Hesse replied:

One day, Jolante, I will have to take the time and try to discover your secret: how do you succed to get such a beautiful skin color! I will not even try to get the secret of how do you make your portraits so alive, so human and so expressive because there is no secret at all: it's your unique talent (I am shy with words like genius...) fav, vote, SU adn Facebook like! I am your fan forever!

Jolante Hesse replied:

This is an incredible compliment Ion! ..and I can say that the feeling is mutual. I wish I could paint just a bit like you...

Good quality canvas, and the photos looks great.

September 19th, 2018

I was very disappointed as the picture on the front of the bag has a black background but the lining on all of these bags is grey. It looks so dreadful I’m sure it even looks worse with a light or pastel coloured cover. As you use it this grey keeps showing giving it a cheap look. it would be so much better without lining if grey is the best you can do. Also the fabric is too soft and droops if the bag isn’t full. So you end up having a droopy bag with grey lining showing. It would be so much better to make this style in the fabric you use in the standard tote. It keeps its shape and the image on this fabric is much clearer. Also it doesn’t need to be lined.

Love this tote, very large and rugged for me to carry books in. Adorable illustration from a gourmet magazine cover. High quality.
