Lily--
Thanks for responding. Please consider forwarding your response to the
whole listserv. I think it would generate more responses.

I looked up your drawing on the Net. Thanks for the tip. Strong!
Your response is interesting. Thanks for the honesty of it.
I admire your autonomy.
When you already know the answer when you ask another artist a question,
what are you looking for?

Best wishes to you, and thanks again.
Terry
