Love the drawing, and the poem goes with it so well - too bad you can't somehow include it in the artwork! I dunno, maybe you can...

Wow darling-the background is so rich and the curves and shadows are amazing.

You are amazing
I love to see your creative beautiful art.
I just can't for the life of me choose your drawings or necklaces as my favorites because they are both so divine. I guess they can tie right?

You are fan-freakin-tabulous!

Loving you

Mmmm...you know all us Andrade girls have those curves! And unfortunately, we have all battled with accepting them. Yet, breathtaking art like yours helps me embrace their beauty...and love myself...curves and all. Love you auntie!!

Haikus are such a great art form. Last year I made a promise to write a haiku a day for a year. It was a great way to stay focused each day and connect with the poet in my head. After 365, I kept going. I documented each haiku on my website, which has since been taken down. I penned over 450 haiku. But then suddenly I decided to delete the entire website and all the poems from my hard drive. Here is why.

Why am I telling you this? Thought you might be able to appreciate it. So you draw as well, huh? Do your talents know no limits?
