Tonja & Matt are amazing hosts, as are Denis & Sally at La Finca. The instruction, the supplies, the food, the sights and the entire experience is one you will cherish the rest of your days. I truly can not wait to return and experience more of the beauty and lifestyle that is Benejarafe & beyond in Spain 2019. "I do love it!" -
It's been an age since I felt so moved by a fellow artist. Tonja's gallery is multi Dimensional, an emotive visual dialogue sweeping you away into it's lush rich colour and texture dancing across the canvas.
So painterly and boundless yet superb attention to classical figurative detail, harmoniously captured in centre stage with piercing soulful personality emanating from the portraits featured.
Complete compositions yet retaining the vibrance of sketched studies. Inspiring this fellow artist to muse again
It is so amazing to have an opportunity to be able to watch Tonja and her creative gifts of vision right before your eyes if you are lucky enough to get into her class or studio! I feel blessed to be able to see the "mysteries" of Tonja's art continue to unfold! It will be cool to see what the future brings with her boundless experimentation!
I love it Tonja and thank you for offering these pieces of you for others to love.
