Do hope I have chosen the right place to thank you all for your uplifting and encouraging comments. I'm in such a busy place right now and will visit paintings by you all, a little each day, but what I have 'skimmed' through, finding my way around this lovely website, has been mind blowing. Wonderful art work. So many truly creative people.

Warm regards and Blessings to you all, Frances
