Dawn! I'm in Awe. Don't for one second ever think you are not a wonderful artist, because this is a masterpiece!!!!! And that is rare for any artist to achieve. Painting like a camera is not a masterpiece for me, its capturing something unique and emotive and so very special. You've done it...right here!!!!
