October 2007 Artistry Tips and Tricks
Truly Inspirational

Hi Karen,

Thank you so much I'm very grateful. I find your piece truly
inspirational. There are techniques within the tutorial that
I haven't tried before so I'm still trying to get my head around
them. Over the next few days I shall try them all and attempt
to produce something passable. At least now I have something
to refer to.

Again thanks a bundle!

Ken Partington
