Dennis and Nolan,

Thank you for those wonderful words Dennis.  Thank you both for teaching me techniques in watercolor and oil.  But more than that, thank you for teaching me how to see the world around me with different eyes.  I see the beauty in everything now; a sunset, a leaf  and even a bug! You are both a joy to watch and your enthusiasm is infectious.  I wish both of you much love, peace and an abundance of happiness in the new year.

To Dennis and Nolan. Thank you very much for what you have done to help me discover myself I am not one for putting my thoughts into words but you both have helped me to put them into pictures and they say a picture paints a thousand words   Looking forward to trying out the new medium in pastels so count me in on that one so once again a BIG THANK YOU.    Ray
Kindest regards

Hi Dennis and Nolan - thank you very much. i think for me 2013 would be a very memorable year , as  i accidentally  found PB. It took me at least 2 / 3 months to decide to enroll  for the classes or not .... However after enrolling, it turned out to be one of the  fantastic online classroom teachings.

Once again thanks very much for all your support , encouragement. i wish both of you abundance love , peace  and happiness in the  new year. :1hug:

 :thankyou:  Dennis, Nolan and Paint Basket!  I didn't paint for over 30 years and you got me to paint again; 
I never, ever was interested in drawing and you got me drawing dogs; I now have made many friends thanks to you!  I have been blessed, and may God continue to bless you, too!
Aloha ke akua- God's love and blessings be upon you,   :hug:

Warm regards indeed Dennis, thank you for sharing your feelings with us...  I am relatively new here, but I will readily admit that there there is no moldy pie in the sky gathering in the corners around here! :)

You and Nolan both have provided a rich environment, full of warm, thoughtful encouragement and it definitely shows by the caliber of people that choose to stay and share all your informative, fun lessons.  :hug:

Looking forward to a new year where we will all grow together!

Happy Holidays! and  :thankyou:  :smitten:
