    This portrait of Mariana is fantastic.
    You really captured the likeness of this lovely child. John is lucky to have you as a friend.

    Thank you for the beautiful dance video.

    Kim, it is beautiful. You captured her eyes and in there her spirit - there is insight emerging from your canvas. It is just beautiful; - the slight hint of a smile...She will love it.

    My deepest thanks.

    Good morning Kim,
    How are you? The portrait is marvelous!! Congratulations on another wonderful project completed!!

  • Jackie 31.8.09

    I've missed quite a few days due to some technical problems with my satellites.

    So I have been up all night trying to catch up but I don't think I am going to make it.

    I am asleep at the PC.!!!!

  • Jackie 31.8.09

    I'll have to listen to your video later on. My satellite, the only one currently at top speed is slowing down and I haven't hit 10 drops.

    I know it will be beautiful though. you always pick out the most elegant videos of us all.

    Happy MM and big hugs!!:-)
