    Grandma, You should be really proud of what you have done like Aunt Marge said above. You give so much dedication to each painting and anyone who does not buy your work is very wrong. I love you so much and can’t wait to see the next masterpiece from the master!

  6. Beautiful work and it gets better each year. So proud of my sister.

  7. Sonya, as I look at your masterpieces, I’m reminded how and when you started practicing, taking courses and workshops sometime ago. You have show the light and intensity to illuminate your paintings into your soon to be personal style and niche. One loves to see this growth and imagination you posess in each new painting. I’m so pleased to have been a small part with my encouragement in your development as a painter and friend. Keep on with that love.

  8. Very professional website. And it really shows off your beautiful work. Congrats!

  13. Hi Sonia,
    It was nice to meet you at the Smithsonian, you are not only a nice lady, but you also have a palette full of talent. I love your paintings, they look better than the ones you copy.
