Portrait is Super

I love the portrait! It looks just super,
and I'm excited about trying it myself.
I've been wanting to get into Painter,
but it takes devoted time and specific
instruction, and I can see both on the near
horizon, now.

I received the instructions for downloading
the tutorial, too, so I'm all set.

Thanks again for everything. It's a new
experience, and I'm really into that these
days. You've been a big help, and I appreciate that.

The style you did was super, and again, thanks so much.

Regards,

Susan Sexton
