As long as I'm here, I might mention that, although one is encouraged to leave comments (there are swell prizes), on some of the blogs, finding the place to do this is really difficult and sometimes impossible. I've had thee days' experience with this now, and been frustrated at least four times when trying to comment. I like prizes, sure, but I also like to tell folks when I find their projects useful and ornamental, and it frustrates me when I can't do it. Now, this may be the fault of the blog host, but maybe a word from a client might fix it.
I've spent the last three days taking an awesome internet class on Photoshop from Jessica Sprague at http://www.jessicasprague.com . Although geared to scrapbooking, the class has lot to offer those of us who do digital art, and I am glad I signed up for it Here are my class assignment results.
