    Some of those paintings are Jim Warren.
    The woman with her hair as water is awesome.
    I saw his work at a Wyland Gallery in Hawaii.
    I have a couple of his prints (numbered) that I have framed. One is the one where the eyes are peeking thru (don't remember the name of it) and the other one is Mother Nature. I love them!
    I also have Wylands too!!

    I have a couple of his prints. I got them when I bought a few of my Wylands that I have. The one with the little mermaid on the dolphin with the fish (can't remember the name of it)...my youngest has in her bedroom.

    How nice that you can have these to enjoy all the time! There were a few that I wouldn't mind owning myself. :)

    I have one signed original by an artist named De Grazia who was probably more famous in the Southwest for his art. I was so fortunate to visit his studio and meet him and have him sign the print before he passed away. I would love to have been able to afford the original oil painting.

    I love art in all it's many forms. :)
