  2. Hey these are great. You are really lovin' the vintage mags. I just got some vintage photography, a flapper girl photo booth picture. It's neat.

  5. You capture the era well! Reminds me in a way of the Sunday New York Times fashion pages. I ate those up as a kid. :)

  11. The eyes are totally captivating in all of these, but especially this last one.

    Did you lay down the paint and then pick it back up again, or was it just straight? There are some places that I can't figure out quite what you did...

    (also it was nice to meet you, and put a face to the art :) )
