Oh Brother John, I bet you say that to ALL THE ARTISTS!!! :D

Thanks Very Much! I just had this made onto a 20x30 Canvas for my Art Studio, (someday!,) and it came out really great!

Here is their website. :)))

I also had "Go Ask Alice" put on 20x30 Canvas through them and it looks AMAZING! HA! It's been an exciting week here having my work printed up in this manner! They arrived just yesterday!!!

Tammy, what photo did Peter Lik take? I must see it. (I'll Google it). We can do it, too! Many versions like Edvard and the rest did and one of us is BOUND to hit it big! HA!

Kalena, I feel the same way about you. xo

Pommers, this is gorgeous! Which is to say, your SP turned out splendidly. I just double-checked that on the Internet, and "They" said the following words are related to "splendidly":
anglophile. museum worker. film watcher. daydreamer. penniless. capricious. suzanne...or suz. dreampop girls uc botanical garden at berkeley Sundaycinema.
You may pick and choose any (if there ARE any) that you feel apply to you!!!

Meanwhile, please send me a copy of that magical program. I desperately need it for a new mini-pic!

Send me the picture and I will run it through the program! I mean it. So long as it is not a contest entry it's a GO! I'd love to help!

That program gives back 15 years at least. Mary, I had this image put on canvas. 20x30. It was so fan to have made. The place near me that makes these is having a huge sale and I am going hog wild. I'll have I think 7 more of my pieces on canvas, too, by Monday. All different sizes! I feel like they are the beginnings of my art gallery.

Okay now to pick...

Penniless sounds good, now that I have spent all my money on those canvases! Ha! Museum worker works well. You should see my home! Okay and one more...let's see now....Ah YES! I truly am an anglophile. Oh my China collection is grand. Kinkade's work especially meant the world to me, too. (So sad he has passed away. And in his 50's. A black day for the planet!)

Thank you dear lady. I always love your visits!!

Hi Emile - That's a high compliment coming from you. I'm sure you know MANY models far more pretty than I. You made my day. I am short and chubby, Lol.
But Thank you!! :D
