Thank you, Kim!!!

Conversely, your latest masterpiece is so TINY! And thus equally impressive!

Thank you, Dawn! I loved painting them - I don't often paint flowers, so it was a lot of fun!

I can't really find the right words, it is such an amazing piece. It has to be one of the greatest paintings ever painted, I'm just blown away! Perfect in every way!

Thank you, Michelle! It makes me happy to know that you like her - you have such a classical influence in your art yourself, and since that is kind of what I was going for in this piece, it means a lot to know that you like her!
