Many, many thanks...Speaking of collections, I have printed out so many of the beautiful sketches that people have posted here. Some are framed and some in a book. Of course on my computer as well.

Thanks for all the kind comments. To answer your question Jef, I took a photo of the sketch and then used "Bump" to download it to my laptop. The only editing I did was to crop it a bit. Of course I cropped out the label and time which was written with white Conte crayon!!! I always finish up with a fixative so I don't smear it.
