Sheila, I left my thoughts on this piece on the Flying Moleskins entry so I won't repeat myself here. I will say that this is my favorite of all your pieces and truly brings tears to my eyes. I wish I could hug that little boy and let him stay here with me.

Powerful. I left a comment on the Moleskin page, but wanted to say directly to you that you have captured this painful fact with such emotion. Just wonderful. Makes my heart ache.

You did well here you touched our hearts.

This is a very powerful painting, Sheila. Your soul went into this one.

Oh my Sheila, what a great painting of a very real problem. The figures you quoted are quite frightening, and that's just in your country. Unfortunately it is probably quadrupled in mine - a very sad state of affairs. This is a moving reminder of those 'unwanted' souls living on the streets.

I like how it is not a square canvas or that the paint goes around softly at the edges! I see you havent been blogging since last week, I tend to forget to blog!
