  5. This is my THIRD attempt to leave a comment. I hope this one works because I have to add all my personal info each time I try to comment.

    You are one lucky gal. Sounds like this would be a fun class. I can truly relate to your fantasy forest, and I think you make better abstract art than I could ever THINK of making.
