    Your son is SOOOOOOOOOOO handsome my friend. I'm sure he's as beautiful inside and he is outside. You are blessed!

    Love to enter your Portrait Contest, but my husband can't afford a new digital camera every time my mug shot breaks his memory chip!

    I am sure the lucky winner will cherish a Portrait drawn by you!

  • Kim 7.12.07

    haha Debbie...
    your avatar pic looks fine to me :)...
    I'm sure your "mug" wouldn't break the camera....
    ok I think I have got the hang of the open ID....coming over to test it out :)

  • Unknown 7.12.07

    i sent the picture weeks might have to ask him about it...

  • Kim 7.12.07

    I will Kimmy :)

  • Anonymous 7.12.07

    You're right, my mug is just Camera Shy!

    And, my fins would cover my eyes!

  • anandi 7.12.07

    Thanks for the appreciation!!
    I am interested in getting into the list. It would be my pleasure and thanks once again. I have set some day for that Natalie portrait. I'll complete it that day.

  • Kim 7.12.07

    that's great Anandi....
    I will put your blog in the new listings....
    thanks for dropping by :)

  • Lynda Lehmann 8.12.07

    Kim, I would love to win one of your beautiful portraits, but I can't tell you why I would deserve one!

    And alas, I am also camera-shy and my husband does not like to hold a camera in his hand!

  • Anonymous 8.12.07

    well Lynda
    I can think of a few reasons....
    your avatar pic looks great to me ...
    lol ...
    hubby won't pick up a camera and you are a photographer :)
    I understand.. ;)

  • Anonymous 8.12.07

    Fabooo photo of Alexander Kim. Such a gorgeous guy, and a chip off the block from his mother :-)

    As a very proud owner of one of your magnificent portrait paintings, I'd just like everyone to know that these photos do not do justice for Kim's work. You have to see them in person to realize their true beauty and Kim's amazing talent.

    Good luck to all!

  • Anonymous 9.12.07

    Just here to check the Portraits and they are great - your such a creative artist.

    Then: I try this OpenID for the first time - hope it'll work :-)

    Wishing you a great end to your week too!

    PS: OpenID did not work, so I'll try again!

  • BoydGreeneArt 9.12.07

    happy painting to you :)

    hi Netster....
    thanks will check it out :)

  • Mim 11.12.07

    Hi - I submitted my picture but now realize that it's for one subject on so will submit again. But it's interesing - I submitted a picture of my mom and me and I can't imagine that my experience of christmas would even exist without mom. Mom was brought up in a strictly Jewish family but married an Italian Catholic and was pretty brave to do so! Her family was NOT happy with that marriage and always let us know that we were second citizens. We soldiered on tho' and didn't let that negativism get us down. We stayed away from celebrating Christmas except for one year when I was about 6 when we put up a tiny tree and got presents the next morning. My mom was certainly brave to do this within a strict Jewish family and while I pretended that Santa brought the presents, in my heart I knew it was Mom and Dad who decided that we should experience Christmas at least once. I'll never forget that experience, it stands out in my mind as a shining moment of joy in a rather disapproving environment.
    I had a happy childhood but that one Christmas was very very special to me, I'll never forget it.

  • Kim 11.12.07

    A very poignant story Mim....
    You're Mum certainly was very brave...
    it's ok to submit the photo of you and your Mum to Santa....
    don't forget to ask your friends to comment on your photo over at Santa's place....
    if you win then you can submit another photo to me with your choice.....your story about your Christmas with your Mum and lovely and you don't need to submit again :)

  • Anonymous 11.12.07
