I haven't logged on to this site for years, and just stumbled across my account today for the first time in a long time. The first name I saw in my notifications was yours wishing me a happy birthday, like you have each year since we started to watch each other. I wanted to let you know here that your positive comments on my work, as much as it really was simple childish material, were important to me and always wonderful and inspiring to see. Honestly I think your account was the only one I remembered when I occasionally would think back to this site? Just because of your regular interaction with me. Seeing now that you've kept up with me, even though my account is long-abandoned, is really really touching. Keep doing what you're doing- your comments motivated me to improve and post more on dA, as I'm sure they have for many others!
Also- I love your artwork; it looks like its become even more prolific, varied, and beautiful since I last saw it!! Your ocean paintings are more gorgeous than ever.
So I guess, mostly I wanted to say thank you. You're a very thoughtful person and great artist.
