Thankyou for posting

Looking forward to seeing the painting we did together....I think my painting was the answer to what you get when you cross Resse Reno with Michelle Allen...happy...and weird...eyes all over the place..and a smile on her face.. Love hanging with you!!

You are like morning coffee - and suddenly there wasn't any..........but give up on you ...nah....sometimes we all need a break. Glad you are back.


WOW - I love these pages, that character, those colors! Willow said the same thing: Mom, I LOVE her colors!!! It was so fun arting with you - can't wait 'til the next time!

Don't worry, I don't think anyone's abandoning you!!! (I'm certainly not) These colours are amazing, it looks like you had so much fun with these pages. I can't decide what I like the best -the orange and red striped nose! No, the blue and green leaf shape! NO! The fact that the guy on the right is a person's head crossed with a bird. Yep, I think that's the coolest part. NO, wait! .... well, you see my dilemma. : )
