May Ling Yong

Yes, she really almost cries that out at the end of the refrain, "accept me for what I am, ... For the things that I do" In your painting, she implores it with her eyes! you always capture the feeling, Paul. A fan from Beirut! Have a great evening, May Ling.

Paul Lovering replied:

May your compelling words made me place the needle on the vinyl to this wonderful song , and listening your superb kind comment shone so bright ... I thank you so much my friend , greetings to Beirut from Edinburgh ... Paul

A strong message here Paul. Yes no matter what, acceptance is a form of showing love to the person. I love the way your inspiration came about and how they showed through your works...Enjoy your weekend..:-).

Paul Lovering replied:

Good morning Belinda , how Fab to wake and view you super comment , sipping my coffee after my morning run

Paul Lovering replied:

Opps...I can vividly remember painting this portrait and trying so hard to get a message across!.. I am so delighted you like and so thankful for your wonderful comment , Happy Weekend ..Paul


This image hit me when I was on one of your pages where one could view several thumbnails at once...it was the one that caught my eye and for some reason struck a nerve! I saw a partial MONA LISA here in your lovely watercolor. I think it is the spatial distance in her features and longer face perhaps but I loved it at once! The daisies in her hair are a great touch for the time you referenced...Flower Power, man :) You have a new Texan admirer sir! (But I'm 3/4 Brit, oh yeah! ) V,F, P (under the wizardress of aahs-boards)

Paul Lovering replied:

A new Texan admirer " How outrageously Fab Pamela " , so so kind , and what a thrill to read your super comment , yes I guess I can see a bit of the Mona Lisa and that gaze that galvanises the Globe in this portrait !... So your nearly a Brit , that sounds wonderful , two different nations divided by the pond , but alike !... How you made my day , it is late here so a cherri good evening my new friend ... Paul
