We are always hardest on ourselves. Andrea~I like your painting. I think it is cool that you are offering a brooch too. Sometimes smudges make a painting! If you hadn't left that comment we all would have thought it was supposed to have been there. :)

~Lady B~ said...

Andrea, you crack me up! Can you please tell my shrink that I am not the only person in the world that talks to myself or criticizes myself? You are one amazingly talented lass with your drawing and painting and sculpting and whatever else you do. Heck, you probably poop in sculptural form. You could have shared some of your talent with us regular folks. I'm digging your skull painting. Thanks for hopping and sponsoring. You rock!

Ms. Ruin said...
