  4. I have this mind picture of you hovering over your computer waiting for the IF word. Your mind really works fast and clever.

  10. You always seem positive to me, but if its anything it could be lack of confidence. That is my problem sometimes. You are obviously very creative. Keep up the great work.

  11. A wonderful landscape. Funny how we )and when I say we I am in this instance referring to you) can inspire others even when we're not feeling so inspired ourselves.

  15. judging by the quality of the comments (they are all brilliant, not just the "nice", "terrific", "great" etc, with the one of Anna Nadler and Mim as my fave ones) I come to the conclusion that all your drawings must be very very very inspiring... for all of us! Now...let me go to see the drawing!

  23. This is a very hopeful image, here you are poised to be released from the bounds of gravity; moving out and up and away... Sometimes we feel like we are stuck and in reality things have already changed... Nice drawing.

  30. Funny that most artists feel that way...especially given that we tend to be so much into procrastination at times...how great could we be if we could really immerse ourselves...and why can't why? Great philosophical thought and so simple...
