Goodness the talent you have is so amazing and wonderful...The green stuff oozing from your

home..I am going back to your pages now and continue the tour and I am sending your addy to 
all my friends.. Thank you again for your kind words in my guestbook...I need all the 
encouragement i can get...*S* Carol aka Angel Keeper
Your very welcome John , your work  is totally wonderful and you have a great gift of talent...
I too agree that people  can get back to the good in man by expressing  with art...  I'm afraid 
now that all my art is done graphically here on the computer...
I had a ceramics business for 15 years but, it became more thani could handle alone so gave 
it up... Now its just me and my trusty computer and i do enjoy working in my graphics so much...
I just added a new group of wallpaper pages that many haven't seen as yet.. If you would like to 
take a look you can find them here...
This is my second group of pages dealing with desktop wallpaper...Nest iam going to get into 
making desktop themes... Please do stay in touch and if i can help in any way please just email 
me... *S* Sincerely,

Comments: What a fantastic and well-organized website, John. I particularly loved the 
step-by-step process where you showed how you create your cat and dog art. Art can be so 
intimidating and daunting to aspiring beginners, but when you break it down into baby steps as 
you did, becoming a great artist seems somehow more attainable. And by the way, 
I wholeheartedly agree with you about dogs and cats' unfortunate dependancy on us, now that 
man has domesticated them. Best of luck to you. Come and see some more art at my
website: Peace, love, art, and atomic love, Rachelle  Rose

I am an artist, too. I can do all you can do, but every time when I see so much efforts made on 
one picture, I admire that effort all over again. I begin drawing since 8 and pass a long trip with 
different steps. So did you, I know. 
I wish you many more finished pictures. Take care. Marijan Gal from Croatia

Comments: I'm a member of Draw For Fun. I don't have any of  my drawings on the website 
because I can't seem to find anyone to put them on for me. I have no computer at home only at 
work and I don't have a scanner. Anyway, I saw your website through that group and I'd just like 
to let you know that your pictures are absolutely beautiful. I take an art school at home. I'm not 
sure if you've heard of it or not "Art Instructions School" out of Minnesota, but it is a wonderful 
school. I hope to one day do freelance and whatever else I can for a career. My only thing is I like 
to just do pencil drawings and ink. I'm not one for putting much color in my pictures. Once in a 
while I do, but I just feel that they are natural and beautiful black and white. If I ever get to post my 
drawings I'd like your opinion on my artwork. Thank you for your time, and again your work is 
beautiful. Michelle Vermont

Reference: Search EngineComments: Hello John. Your art work and drawings are compelling and 
beautiful. Ironically I just moved to Curacao from the US two months ago. I am a designer and 
urban planner and i was searching the web for designers and architects in Curacao. I came across 
this website. Your story about your grandfather is very moving. My grandmother is our family 
matriarch and artist extrodonaire! I think that is where i receive my talents for creativity. 
Tomorrow i will be attending Curacao's art first one and i hear the island's first one as 
well. Maybe i will see your artwork there!

weer op Curacao geweest. Wij zijn toen ook in het huis aan de Mauritslaan 5 wezen kijken omdat 
u ons wilde laten kijken. Wij hebben dat toen heel erg gewaardeerd. We hebben Yvonne, Frans,

Comments: Hi John, I just wanted to let you know that I enjoyed browsing through your site. 
You have a real gift for capturing people as well as animals, and I love the stamp work. I just
finished reading "Griffin and Sabine" and your stamps reminded me of those illustrations. 
Anyway, you have some gorgeous work! Thanks for sharing.

inherited by name, because my own drawings look like shit.

Comments: I am a member of Mars Hill Church in Vienna Virginia, USA. I got your email through 
the arts discussion group, and I am glad that I had the chance to check out your site. You are 
blessed with a great gift, and it is encouraging to see you doing what you love. Blessings! 

Dear John,
I am glad that I was able to see your work. I know that Pete had mentioned it before and I wasn't 
sure what he was talking about, but when I got the 
link it was my pleasure to view it. You have beautiful work!I would love to have a bit of your talent. 
I have an Art Degree, but I don't have as 
much natural talent as you do. I agree with you though that anyone can learn, because I did. :) 
I however haven't been doing anything with my art, 
so it is good for me to see someone doing so much. It motivates me to do art. Now I just need 
some time, and get motivated enough to do a couple of 
pieces for church. Anyway, thank you for writing, and I pray that the Lord continues to bless 
your talent! I will be sure to let others know about your site. In Christ Rosemary

Hello John,
I know what you mean by making your day. I am always overjoyed when someone is moved by 
my work enough to say so and to recommend it to 
others, or to order prints. Knowing that you have touched someone with your art is an amazing 
You are a great artist. Keep it up. I will tell others aboutyou. Please visit my first of many sites. 
I don't have a great site like you. But I would love for you to visit. Thank You, Kandi Barnes

Comments: Awesome....Awesome...Your talent is beyond anything I have seen. Your works 
are more than the paintings that you do. You have a raw talent that may not even be known 
in your time, a creation of something that the art you create just becomes  a part of...
Thank you for sharing...
