Dennis Flanagan June 07, 2006

Profound meaning? My idea of deep thinking is mmmmmm, donuts. LOL

Keep up the great posts Richard. #2864763

Ken Smith level-classic June 07, 2006

If you keep quiet, no one will know. They'll just assume you know the deep meaning behind this. Unlike Dennis, who opened his mouth. :-) Nicely done, Richard. I see the GV style in this one. #2866589

Thank you Shelly, Dennis, and Ken! Shelly my wife had the same reaction to this. :)
Krispy Kreme, Dennis?
Heh, Ken, should I continue the mystery awhile longer? #2874498

Thanks much Bill, Carla, Amy, Pamela and Darryl!!
I really appreciate your wonderful comments; they are really encouraging!

Cora Miller level-classic June 26, 2006

Nope, the boundaries look perfectly clear to me. :) I really like this one, Richard. I like the colors, the graphic lines, and the simplicity. My only suggestion would be to make sure your primary lines are straight. In this case the glass shelves, they seem to be running downhill a bit. Otherwise, very well done! #2955201

Richard P. Lussier July 19, 2006

Thanks Cora!!
Sorry it took so long for me to get back to you. :)
Thanks also for the top-a'-the-shelf tip! Maybe I was concentrating too much on my "clear boundaries" to notice my sloping shelves... lol #3051617
