Nicola! Lovely Koi sketch!!! Can't wait to see the finished piece. You have been awarded a Sunshine Award..you are a HUGE ray of sunshine in my world. Thank you, my friend!

Hi Friend, This is just stunning! I love the scales and all the details - I think it might be my favorite sketch of yours yet! Thank you too for the idea to shoot outside - it is so hard to capture the sparkle from the crystals while at the same time not washing out the piece - I will try your suggestion :) Kristin xo

Hi Nicola! I've bestowed the Renee Award upon you! You have been a fabulous new friend to me these past few months, very encouraging and supportive, so I included you as one of my oaks! Have a great day, I hope it's lovely over there in Australia - it's absolutely miserble here, rain, wind and cold!
