Hi Cecile,

I am so sorry, in fact you did response to my question a while ago, I am afraid I never did answer, which is not nice nor polite of me....

Thanx for your explanation about your last name!

I will look at your website asap!

Take care! Dez

Hi Cecile! Thanx for replying on my discussion. I already have cut up the piece in ATC's, still have to finish those, but I will post them asap, but I will definitely keep your hint in mind for the next time I do something similar! I am curious about your artwork...?! 

Btw, do you have Dutch relatives or ancestors? Your name sound very Dutch in fact...

Best wishes, Dez
