Those are seriously good - if you don't have the confidence to "take them to smart places" get someone to twist your arm for you!

Very good, what medium do you use? I'd suggest taking them to show an art dealer: your lack of success in the coffee shop could be due to people wanting to buy coffee there rather than drawings/prints. The worst that can happen if you take it to an art dealer is that you will be told its not what they are looking for, and if you want to persue that road ask them what they are looking for.

As I said execution is superb, so you aren't gonna get much criticism on that count unless the dealers an idiot.

Zachos - it's mainly pencil, one of those retractable plastic ones cause I can get really thin lines. Except for the one titled pastel cob - the clues in the name :lol: that was my 2nd ever attempt at pastels so I was quite pleased! I want to try oils next. Thanks for the suggestions, I'm living in Chester at the moment the galleries here are scarily posh I don't think I'd even get through the door but maybe if the standard of the work is good enough I may have a chance :oops:

Utterly beautiful. Bucket just looked and said "wow, does she do commissions," then paused and realised he hasn't got a horse yet. :lol:

I thought (means nothing actually fried brain most of the time) that I saw some of your work some where?
Maybe I dreamt it.
