    The three paintings grouped together make a very powerful statement that covers both time and concept. Is there some way their prints can be displayed together, perhaps permanently? Or made available for sale?

    Nice paintings… I like the way they were presented in order, at the end, to show the progress of ASL over the decades, to give us an idea of the history…

    sorry for the huge delay in replying to these – dont think i saw them when they came in Dianrez – poster would be great but not sure how to get reproduction permission for Goya work.

    Karen – me like it too to see our evolution visually
