    I "Grant" you that, fellow Scotsman . . .

    Aye, Grant:

    So good to hear from you, Grant. My father's forebears are from the sod of
    Scotland. At one point I had dreams of visiting the homeland. Brownlee is
    a Scottish name. But I'm too old now, and the airport security is a major
    hassle. Gripe Gripe. . .

    Originally my name was referring to a terrain feature, as in Greenleigh,
    such as a meadow. So your kind words hit close to home, laddy. . . AND
    Brigadoon . . . is my all time favorite musical on Broadway.

    I do so appreciate you taking time to post your comments. Wishing you
    a bonny day, and a stellar weekend,

    The Rickster

    Greetings, David


    I do appreciate your remarks David. It was kind of you to take time to
    respond. You mentioned the colours. And I think that is one of the parts
    about this fantasy piece that has made it so much fun to do.

    As I wrote to another Planeteer earlier, I sat down with my sketch pad and
    box of Prismacolour Pencils and figured out what colours I wanted to use
    and determined what order they would be in as I was planning to "blend"
    the oil colours from one colour to another, as much as possible.

    Have a great weekend, David, and thanks again,

    Hello Brian in Britain. . .

    Hi Brian:

    Thank you so much for your comments; I do appreciate it, and that you took
    the time to do so. Like you, I think the blues and greens are colours that
    people find soothing and peaceful, in some regard.
    And that is my favorite side of the colour wheel; i.e. the Turquoise,
    aqua, blue violet, and the various shades of Blues and Greens.

    Thanks again, and have a great weekend,

    The Miami Jayhawk

    Ah Yes, Greetings to the Good Doctor. . .

    Hello Doctor Pepper:

    It is always good to read your comments, my friend. And thanks for your
    remarks posted on my "Mickey Finn" thread.

    Perhaps. . . ahem. . . you could say I "slipped 'em a Mickey" Groan! 8-(

    Perhaps not?

    Thanks again, Steve. I wish you well, and hope you'll be telling us about
    your next project soon. We haven't heard anything from the Pepper Plant
    (alright now Rick, enough already) production team in a while.

    Inquiring minds want to know. Will there be news at Eleven? What are you
    working on, mate?

    Hello to the Gothic Geek. . .

    Aw Mark:

    It is always so good to hear from you, my friend. (Of course, I am rather
    slow with my projects, since I can't work too many hrs. at the bench each
    day. . . take days off now and then, to avoid neck and back pain, for this old
    body. So I don't post project very often.)

    But I do so appreciate your very kind words, Mark. I am having a lot of
    fun with this project. And frankly, I am surprised it has received such nice
    words from the Planeteers since it is not a Historical figure. But we do have
    such a nice group of ladies and gentleman here. And you sir are certainly
    one of the really class gentlemen at Planet Figure. I have mentioned before
    I see your WIP and SBS tutorials as so helpful and very interesting as well.

    Best wishes to a fine weekend, Mark,
