Thanks for taking the time to comment! A good friend built this this VW for his daughter. It was parked in the garage when we returned from a concert around 7:00 pm and just a small amount of Sun was hiting the back end. The pointed highlights looked like big teeth! I'm glad you liked it. thanks again! #849374

Thanks much again Ronda. You would have indeed liked her. She was free as the wind yes, and everybody that knew her liked or loved her. She especially liked nice friendly people, and you would be top of her list, I know.
Keep in touch, your friend,, John #883403

A VERY belated congrats on this past win... Great detail to focus on. Saw your "Beneath the Shadows" (I think) in the Critique Forum, and had to look at your gallery---you have eye-popping, beautiful images, with such a vivid stamp of color application. I love them! "No Lifeguard" is terrific!! #2282541
