Jim, I'm flattered that my artwork reminded you of black hole machines. Beyond words, really.

Imagine the world being destroyed by the world's biggest mandala. Isn't that just the coolest way to go?

P.S. Your drawing's pretty cool. I like the pseudo-photo out of focus effect in the background. Don't think I ever saw that in a drawing.

Emily, at first I thought I was looking at black and white photos wondering where the drawing is...Then I took a closer look! Talk about capturing life!

You Go Girl!

I think Royce Faina is Emily and I's father in disguise... I was about to make the photo comment to parody him.

Wow. I am appreciative plus the tiniest bit envious! Drawing is the one thing that I'd like to be able to do that I don't seem to have much aptitude for.

You, however, are amazing. I have seen your photography this summer, and was awed, but you draw too!! ??

Wow again. :)

Your drawing is just beautiful. At first glance, it looked like a black and white photo. The close up showed such wonderful details. I just love it.

Thanks, everyone! Tom, Daddy said it looked just like an Ansel Adams photo! ;)

The effect I was going for on this one was definitely photo-realism. I wanted to take something tiny and delve into it. Dwarf dogwood stand about 5 inches tall, lining the trails like border flowers in a fairy garden. Here they are portrayed twice that size, as though seen from a fairy's point of view.

Royce,
Just wait until you hear about the third child of that family. He could effectively negate all wonders of the other two.

Jim,
I know you are the mastermind behind the Large Hadron Collider. Just the other day I heard you saying, "I will destroy the world! Muahahahaa!"

Emily,
Great drawing! Jacquelyn and I want a copy on our wall in the den. Let me know if you end up going to print with it.

Good laugh, Michael. (Ah, I love my family...)

You have got to tell me about the third child!

I thought I was the child of the negative talent. I have hands that don't do anything I tell them to.

WOW!!! Emily, this is really exceptional! I thought at first that it was a black and white photograph!

No Tom, you're just a genius, that's all.

Thanks, Julie and Royce!
