Hi my new friend, you have wonderful art to share with us! I thank you for that! I also thank you for asking me to add you to my buddy's list! Thank you for the effort to hit the "add to your friends button"! Although, I'm really honored to be on your list, I must say that if you have nothing to say to my art in what way ever, I will remove you from my list. Obviously we don't have the same goals on this site. I'm here to learn from your critiques, not to give you a higher rank in the top hundred. Love to you! **Joyce**

Susuie, one of the friends listed at your site, is ill. A get well letter would do her heart good and cheer her up a bit. We live in a world that does not apriciate art. We must care for eachother. So leave a post on he board if you have time. L John TOX
