  1. What a beautiful picture! I love it.

  2. Another beautiful painting by one of my beautiful friends!

    Take care, Sue

  3. Okay- I reposted because I was in such a flipping hurry that I made several typing mistakes-here is the "cleaned up" version~;>)

    Good luck at the show Christie-although I don't think luck has much to do with it- I think it is all about your talent and people that appreciate it! I LOVE that painting- If I had a "cowgirl" in my life I would want that hanging in her room...It is BEAUTIFUL!!! I didn't see that one on your web site though...or isn't it available yet? XXOO Diana

  4. Hi Christie,
    I wish I was close so that I could take one of your classes. I really love your paintings; so many beautiful flowers. Pink roses being my favourite. I just wanted to reply and say, yes the picture on my blog is a Susan Rios. I love her paintings as well. Have a wonderful Mother's Day. Thank you.
