This is from 2001, and it's still top notch. Incredible. I have to respect your skills. From youth you've been excelling!

I have to tell you, I'm learning so much from you. You have a softness to your hand that must come from within. I have a hardness to everything I create, even my handwriting is rough. So I've practiced having a peace while painting, something I notice in all your work. That sounds silly, but it's the best way I can describe it.:)

Thank you so much. I'm quite fond of this one myself, though, amusingly, not many people seem to think much of it. :giggle:

Your handwriting is beautiful. One day I will perfect a nonscrawled scribing. One day...
