 :heeha: I watched the class last night.   :eek: The most amazing, incredible, fantastic thing I've ever seen here!!!  :yippee: And let me tell you, I've seen some pretty amazing things!  :cheering:
 Had me totally on the edge of my seat! It was magically appearing and looking so beautiful. Then  :o OH NO!! What is he doing?  :eyesclosed: I can't look!  :eyesclosed: :sweat: Will you look at that!  :pullhair: It all went together!  :doh:
Maybe it's a good thing we're changing to pastels... I don't know if I can take many more like that! Talk about a thriller!  :faint:

Magical Dennis, that's all I have to say...WOW...Banner...excellent...surendipitous...monumental...magnificent...  :not_worthy:

I wish, I hope, I deam that I could one day watch you paint without the time constraint imposed upon you, what a magnificent sight that would be! I'd be very quiet...honestly!  :stress: Well...I could try  :blush:    >:D        :not_worthy:

Cheers, Val

Doina,

Nice work on the African man. 

I tipped the screen on my laptop back a bit and the photo darkened up nicely.

Good work, girl!
