Creating this piece was almost magical! I remember it was late at night. I was postponing doing the water droplets...because I'm not a "detail type person". Well, I loaded my brush, pushed down on the special spot (guess the previous quote calls it "the right place")...lifted the brush...and it was all there!! The reflected light, the shadow, the feeling of a water drop! Then, somehow, I did it again!! Felt like that paint brush on the Wonderful World of Disney, where it swishes, and everything just appears!

Dear Betty, I am in AWE!!!!!! Your technique is what I LOVE!!!
You have touched my heart with these wonderful paintings,
and give me hope to work harder. I am a novice -
but would love to learn and to be more like YOU!!!!
Words could never express how impressed I am
and how extraordinary you are!!!!! Congratulations......
I hope one day I can be in your presence in a art gallery
where you are showing your magnificent works.
Thank you, Evelyn Fish Texas

Dear Evelyn, Thank you for your kind note.
You are the reason I paint!
For if one does not touch another's heart,
with one's life, what is the purpose!!? Betty
