Dear Soul, Hal, I was sitting quietly reading about pixels,dpi,ppi,still am beautifully confused. Maybe I should just stick to painting!!! I'm am so touched by your kind thoughts, especially from your dear self. We all know each other a lot better now, so it's with humility that I accept your words, because coming from you especially, so talented and thoughtful, I am moved to tears. It's what an artist wishes maybe to hear from another in one's lifetime. You've made me very happy. I'll save this one for sure...the little girl was present on the day, in my imagination..this was a dreamlike moment, when the subject stood in the corner of my teacher's classroom, and I just pretended the humble bags told a story of coming,going,entry...glad deeply that you like it, and thank you for taking the trouble to tell me (we all sit wondering where the visitors are these days,lol). Yours most sincerely, Vivian.

I wish I lived closer to you Vivian as I'd love to do the same for you, as I feel your art shown here has lost some of it's exuberance through the lens. Please don't take this the wrong way as it's not meant to be, it's just that I see so many beautiful works of art here that are lost due to not very good photography and I wish I could rectify them all!! lol for free! just so that they are shown the way they should be shown. Do you

God is blessing you beyond anything you can imagine. Just hold on in your spirit. Yes, trials can NEVER crush you. Cry if you have to, jump around if you, stay in your private room and meditate if you have to, but know that the God in you is there to transfer energy and turn trials into victory for the glory of His Kingdom! And everyone who has eyes to see and ears to hear, will know that Vivian, is beyond blessed. Have a blessed night, Dear Vivian.

Hi Vivian, we all have prejudice about others based on their first appearance to us. I don't remember which of your replies or threads I read at the very beginning, but I admit that my first impression of you was totally wrong. Now I know: You are persistent, intelligent, honest, vulnerable, sharp, and funny. I'm glad I know you better now.

What a lovely lady you are :-) Thank you for the wonderful compliments about my work, truth is that I would far rather be painting turbulent seas and crashing waves but they don't have any appeal to the population here ......

Hi Folks, I'm spending a wet Saturday afternoon glorying in the joyous reception received at FAA. This is giving thanks for kindnesses, thoughts,encouragement, truth, fairness, and much more, that I've experienced in only 9months of my recent life: these expressions have humbled me and did not want them forgotten/lost in time. More to come. Count your blessings, I do.

Honesty Pods are so unbelievably fascinating Vivian, I loved removing the outer carapace to reveal the shiny, magical discs inside when I played in my mother's garden as a child! This is a wonderful study, congratulations :-)

I did laugh.......I agree with Allen. A man has been stabbed through the face with a carving knife, which protrudes from the back of his head. The large amount of blood on the table and chairs suggests a multiple (attempted) murder :-).

Dear Vivian Anderson, From what I can read about you, you came a long way to the place where you build your artwork,So right away you'll notice that our trips learn. I find in your work a great variety of form and content But my attention is focused this subtle almost monochromatic painitng I think it is your flagship artwork I finds in him a great calm, sunny early morning, and this means that he carries with himself hopes for a wonderful day kind regards

From a dear friend/member: Vivian, Club reality can sometimes be fun, as well as a puzzlement. I have almost given up trying to understand the public and the successful artist. I try to remain true to my own vision, but I also permit myself an occassional dip in the pool of self-doubt and self-examination. Thank you for this thread and your refreshing input into discussions in general.

From a FineFriend,Ken..thank you: As an artist, I find inspiration from many sources, including other artists. Here on FAA I've been inspired artistically, and also inspired and encouraged as a human being by many FAA artists. One such artist is Vivian Anderson. Her work has inspired me, but even more importantly, she has so often encouraged me to reach for a higher place. I value her input. This work was inspired in part by her work "Abstract I".

Hiya Vivian, I was just browsing your beautiful art. You are one of the most creative artists at FAA. This painting keeps grabbing me to take another look and another and... Every time I look at this painting a scene of a lovely young girl getting dressed in her ballet shoes and dress is happening alongside this clothes stand. Don't ask me why - maybe it's the colors, I really don't know. But that's what my imagination tells me. Wonderful painting Vivian.

Oh well, one must take the good with the bad...this appeared with my name on it....alas... ""Vivian,,when I said earlier "you are assertive about how original and creative you are"..it was a nice way for me to say that all you do is complain about others work and techniques making it seem like you think you are so original and innovative.""

That last quote was made by a now non-member and I feel really sorry for her that she took everything anybody said in exactly the opposite way than meant. Verbal Abuse is a Crime. DOES ANYBODY KNOW NANCY WOOD of RADICAL RECONSTRUCTION , a member here?: I am afraid for her well=being. If you know her or of her, please let me know. She stopped communicating before Easter,after saying to me she was in danger.

One must take the good with the bad....this occurred totally unnecessarily to me, unsolicited by me, via internal email.....kept for posterity, but how sad: you are so sweet, and in forum you try to play games. I will post a message about you and your attitude. It is time at least 1000 people to know who you are.... endquote

Quite relieved...to 'know' someone's true colours and 'need' to 'own' the forum and push an honest mistake into the realm of their own selfish,judgemental attitude...lesson learned, against the background of what I mistakenly thought was a cyber friendship ..NOT.....live and learn,and ignore...not worth the price......and , still I can rest knowing my intentions in life include not climbing 'up' on somebody's back , purposely, NOT......
