  4. Such a glowing red to this old truck. Your subjects always have such strong personalities that they always seem to have a name. I am interested to know if, as you are painting them you feel a very close relationship to your subject - or is that a silly question? Somehow you do more than just 'paint' things.

  16. I love your wet into wet style of letting the colors do their thing. I know this takes a lot of skill not to get a muddy mess! I am going to my first ATC meeting near here tomorrow. I made my Zentangle challenge this week an ATC size, too. The ATC challenge is "Hit the Books", so I have to do one tonight.
