Faye, I especially love the quote you attached to your painting. They're always a little gift of inspiration when they arrive in my box.

Great job on this one. You make me sorry I've missed the last couple of challenges she has offered up ... you made it look fun.

Very well done Faye. I like the sense of introspection that comes out in the gesture. You realize all these warm beach scenes are driving me nuts!
