Thank You Karin


When I read Karin's post, it was hard to believe a year had passed. The first thing that popped into my head was what a wonderful opportunity to pay tribute to this auspicious occasion and the great lady responsible for it. This marked the beginning of some great new relationships, growth and accomplishment as an artist and the most fun I've ever had painting. Happy anniversary everyone.
