Viewer Comment Continued from top of 102-173 TV Lisitings
"...I gleaned a great deal of knowledge from the painting of the marsh... the Diptych you did during March-April. Your current project... the conte and chalk still life of the copper colander has taught me to be more careful with the eliptic perspective of round objects. I'll send a photo of the result of my watching you and 'copying' your wisdom. ..."

....Sincerely,     Dixie
