Spectacular Gallery, Rachael! I will definately be back for another visit soon, when I can give your pieces the time they deserve.

Thanks very much, then, for your preliminary visit.  ;-)

Okay, Rachael. I have to boggled me! *smile* I came here with the full intention of carefully and thoughtful strolling through your Gallery. I seriously wanted to choose some favorites on which to comment. Then I got caught up in studying your Journey...from 2004 to the present. *shaking head* There is so much to see! I mean, really SEE! *sigh* going to take more time. More visits!

Awww, thanks very much.  

Yes, there's quite a number of works in my gallery - gems and roughs alike.  All have been my instructors, even if I've not been an especially patient student.  ;-)
