  1. Hi Katy this is a cool site.. This painting is one of mine too.. evelyn aka Luvshack

  2. Thanks Evelyn,

    I'm so glad you dropped by and left a comment. Putting the site together has been a lot of fun. Lol, I still have most of my hair left, too. I learn new things every day.

    I love the painting. From time to time I use it as my Desktop background photo. Windows Vista has been a pain in some ways but it does terrific graphics. The luminosity is just amazing when viewing paintings. This one is particularly beautiful.

    Please drop by again soon. Comment as much as you like...I love the feedback and interaction. I hope to get it going here like we have at SFF.
