Hi Virginia!!

I have been leaving little comments on some of your drawings on your blog, but Im not sure they get to you.

I just want to tell you how much I have really LOVED going through your drawings, of LA in particular. The drawings are so true to place, I feel I am sitting right there drawing along with you.

Hope you get this little note to know your work is so appreciated, and has inspired me to start sketching again.

Wish I was still in LA so we could have lunch once again. I am in Michigan for the time being, and will probalby enjoy it more if i start sketching.

Best, Elaine Wolf- Baker Sept. 19, 2013
