Dear Wanda,

I just now have seen that you have won a second prize for this picture/painting. I thought it was the BEST photo of every photo in our Creative Photo class, and I can only say that I think it deserves to have a First Prize. It is simply divine! How have you printed and framed it? I think it would be beautiful large and on canvas. A real winner! #1077295

Lewis P. Church 10/31/2005 12:40:20 PM

What a wonderful portrait, it looks like a painting and your subject is fantastic. I especially like how the subject blends in so well with the background. Just Excellent! #2019037

Dear Wanda,

Yes, it is nice to connect with you again. I am doing well and taking more and more shots. I just took a four day trip to Venice and you can see some of the shots on my better photo website. I am taking my second class at BP on Mastering Light with Jim Zuckerman which has been really nice. How about you? Did you ever frame and print that beautiful photo of the artist? #2026674

Wanda Judd 11/2/2005 9:23:47 AM

I am taking a printing course right now on I have not printed anything yet...I have missed seeing your my next stop is to view your site....I took Jim's class a couple of years ago and loved every minute of it...because of his class I started doing people. #2026909
