The canvas was plain and bare, except the blues, happily set free.

With the blue, I went to play as childish as I may.

Alex, Ben Gieske recommended me to read this colorful poem as he knew how much I like color. It is so inventive and creative and you use color in a way I would not thought of! You have certainly colored my day. 10 Karin Anderson

I like your novel approach to this subject and appreciate the play of all the colors.

This is very, very well done. 'But I am just one piece in a gallery and all of you are the others' - That makes me smile. There's something very clever about your writing, and whatever, implacable thing it is, I really like it.
