Love it! I don't think you would have fallen out of love with it even if you would have kept it around! I'm so glad you're "playing" with your art instead of straight, serious work... must keep the little child inside happy once in a while.

My daughter, Jacqui came home from college today and one of the first things she noticed was your wonderful vase on my fireplace (some of us LOVE getting your gifts :-) ) Keep playing, AJ


I've seen this piece up close and personal and it is even way cooler than the photo shows... it's gorgeous! Michelle... your creativity never ceases to amaze me... and your friend is definitely going to love this.


Thank you so much for your awesome gift! Your friendship is more than enough, but when I look at this painting I have concrete evidence that ya luv me, he-he! Your paintings absolutely inspire and bring happiness in my day. I am blessed to know you.


I love it Michelle.. so heartfelt. And I love how you broke it down in steps.


That's wonderful. I totally know what you mean about the handmade gift thing. I used to crochet baby blankets as shower gifts, but after I realized many people don't really appreciate them, despite the MONTHS of work that goes into them, I stopped giving them unless it was to someone I knew would really value it.
