Joanna Dover said...

Hello Kathy! thanks for dropping by my blog and commenting on my drawing - funnily enough it was inspired by your work! I'd been looking at your tonal work and thought it was about time I picked up a pencil or two, so I thought it amusing when you then left a comment - and I thought you should know you are inspiring lots of us out here in the blogosphere!

Ann Marie said...
