Oh that's okay! I have that too sometimes(most of the times) when someone writes me a somewhat longer message, I want to reply properly! And sometimes I don't find the courage to read it toroughly and come up with an appropriate answer :>
You're so very welcome dear! And don't worry too much, easier said than done, but you did really well on this painting
Please do paint more things! <3
I think that it's nice to show kindness, even to those you don't know, I mean I also like reading descriptions, you get to know even more, about the piece or thoughts of the person behind the work they created that you liked. So it's only normal for me to say a few words about that too!
Animals are the best thing this planet has.. So
No problem dear, and I hope I did not discourage you too much to read and reply to this message as well, haha! I know the struggle :>
