Gail- As is a custom of mine, I like to spend some time taking a walk though the gallery of people I have been blessed to meet. Creative, masterful, beautiful, inspiring works of art fill the gallery. One of my greatest joys is to see the works of others, your works cannot be simply looked at and move on. They draw you in, hold you, demand to be studied.
Sensational work.
For me, he was one of our best president's and your picture here of this dedicated monument to him, is just as monumental. Beautiful work in tones, details, lighting and clarity, composition.
Remarkable work.
