Social media has been a blessing to me! I was recently accepted as a "friend" to one of my art role models Lee Hammond. She agreed to look at one of my portraits that I created while studying one of her books. She told me that she couldn't critique it because it wouldn't be fair to her students, which I understand. She looked at it and really did give me her opinion: She said I was doing a great job and told me she wished I would take her classes. She said I would advance very quickly! That is the kind of encouragement that I really needed!
