Wondering if you could do me a small favor (a lot to ask since I disappeared, I suppose. But I would be really grateful if you could help me out) So, could you delete my Surname/full name, whichever you think appropriate from you're Wacky Bag list? (Nothing personal, it was great fun to take part! Just don't wanna be tracked down by the real world!)

Thanks, hope you're well

Take care.

I really like this mural--the colors are fantastic, but the image is the grabbing thing about it. The fact that she is pointin upward I really like--but what I like best of all is her figure. Here is a mermaid that could be any one of us--not just one of those ridiculous sylphs from Ralph Loren fragrance commercials--and she is beautiful.

Fabulous job. Absolutely fabulous

Dear Carry

It is always nice to hear from
"old" friends

Hope you have been keeping well and busy - as wel as out of trouble...
I have not been by WackyBagWorld for quiet a while - just heading to a local boutique I discovered full of them, got me another one there a couple of days ago...

I most definitely will do - any suggestions for a pseudonim?

Take good care, don't stay lost

hello miss slskenyon!

When I sketched her I had no idea it will be the success she has been thus far... more so than the other two by far!

What has been fantastic was the spontaneous feedback of man of all ages - including teenage boys around 14/15.
Even been thanked for painting "one our age, because they always paint the young skinny ones" - words of a rather handsome gentleman...

Or women, getting a kick out her hips and tummy (and wrinkles, I am sure) telling me they identify with her...
"I can tell she's been around the block a few times..." was another great comment whe she was going through one of those "insane looking stages"
I wanted her to look wired - not insane.. he-he-he
I am very pleased with her - althouhg I must admit Tony "youthyfied" and beautyfied her some on Sunday AM - what was that about "boys will be boys"?
I sneaked back Wed. morn and "plumped her up and aged her again!

The comments really made me feel great and validated - they kept on coming in 5min intervals...
We originally started out in 4 different age groups and at one point I suggested we paint the mermaids to our likeness - I was the only one that folowed through!
