  3. Since I first read your blog almost two years ago, I knew you were awesome! This just adds to my admiration of you. Thank you for being an inspiration in many ways. In a personal note, because of your blog I started my blog where I have been able to chronicle my first try of oil painting and all the moments of struggle and victory in the journey. I will forever be thankful. Sincerely, Carolina Elizabeth
