Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul and sings the tune without words and never stops at all. – emily dickenson

    I love it, Kellly! The red of her dress just sings! (And it was fun playing around with it in Photoshop yesterday. It was great seeing you! Hope some of the tutorial made sense.) Oh, and thanks for the wicked, wicked cakes.

    Hey Kelly!

    Great meeting you today! Laini and I enjoyed your company and appreciated the awesome lunch-sserts you brought over! 🙂

    As I’d said when you were here, I’m VERY impressed with your interest and immediate knack for creating such great art! I can’t wait to see what you do in the future given that you’ve come so far so fast already! GREAT for you! (and tell John to get those pens and paints out too! 🙂


    P.S. – thanks for popping over to my blog too, but your mentioning of “Clap Your Hands Say Yeah” having just come to Portland is like salt on a wound! ARRRRGGGHHH! I can’t believe I missed them! They’re SO incredible! — sigh … 🙁

    I found your blog a few weeks ago and ‘fell for’ your art. It has been a joy to read your Art Fest descriptions over the last few days. Todays art work is one which calls to me – thank you for sharing.
