Lately your work has just jumped up a level. Your work with the flowers has a special magical charm about them that I can't seem to stop looking at (even while typing this).

Oh, Kathy, I adore works of gray, shades of black and white! There is such an innocence and delicacy in this image.

It has been my signature for such a long time, creating in this medium, and admiring others that do also!

Bravo, love, bravo!

Oh, holy cow, Kathy! This is....breathtaking! What are those, snowdrops? I LOVE that she's collecting it in a little nut cap and she's wearing this ultra-cool cornucopia-shaped hat. Look at her furry little vest and striped stockings. This is absolutely magical!!!
