North Haarlem. I found you by gus' silk art page which he advertised on the net. We are in

about your site and maybe even join your artist group. You have a well presented site which is 
easy to get around and I will need a lot more time to go over it.

Comments: I belong to a mailing list called "Busy Brushes". It was here that I read your 
posted message. From there I visited your site. Wow! I love your site! I like how you show 
progress (step-by-step process) of your work! I have been painting for about 10 years for pleasure 
and occassional profit. What I enjoyed most about your site is the encouragement and help you 
offer  to the budding artists (Kids)! I have a 14 year old son who has been drawing since he could 
hold a pencil. He especially likes to draw animation. I try to encourage him to continue drawing and 
to try new things related to his interests. He is going to love your site! Thank-you for a lovely 
inspiring site!   Regards, P. Mrazik

Name: Alex
Web Address:
Comments: Wonderful site. I like how there is an eclectic blend of things here. I especially like 
the pages showing how you complete a picture piece by piece. I'm in love with your Scorpion 
woman  and Iguana man. I also love the prints of the Native Americans. The one looking left 
with the large headdress really captured the essence of him to me. Though it's not 
really clear  (that is, compared to your other prints of human faces such as the ape man) you 
can tell he's serious and there's such emotion on his face. I'm looking forward to going through 
this site even more.
