You've captured 'American Githic' beautifully. I look forward to seeing your paintings - but also which paintings you've got in your paintings!

Hi Karen,
I've been an Ebay fan for over a year now and just wanted to stop in. Your work always brightens my day. And the titles you come up with are terrific!

Do you have a lifetime pass to this museum?

Nice design with the natural pose.
