  8. Aaah! So much to look at! =D I had fun looking for all the states I've either lived in or visisted. Never been to Idaho but just looking at potatos seems to crack me up =)

  10. What a fabulous and wonderful tribute to the states. Girl you are dangerous with a pencil. OMG how fabulous is this illustration. How long did it take you? The detail is off the wall wonderful and beautifully illustrated. Great work. So glad that you didn't get the snow. I tell you it was all the wiggling and jiggling that done it he he he he he!!! Have a wonderful week.

  11. Hey Krista! Wow! This is totally amazing! The amount of detail alone is staggering! You must have the patience of a saint! (you are a saint):o) I love how you put all the states relatively close to where they are on a map.... thats' so cool! Hey Illinois and Pennsylvania don't seem to far apart. Wave out your window and I'll see if I can see you. Great work my friend! God bless

  12. Thanks for your kind comments, folks! Leen, this is about 8X10, I try to paint so it will fit on my scanner without piecing scans together. (Too lazy!) I'm waving, Jack!
