When I first started this blog, I had the comments turned off. I thought they might make me self-conscious, I don't know. Anyway, I turned them on now, and have received some sweet replies.
I'm not really familiar with the "blog etiquette". How should one deal with comments? Should I reply to each one, should I acknowledge them somehow? Will people think I don't read or - worse - that I don't care about what they write? Cause I do!
Comments are, first and foremost, the certainty that somebody is actually reading what you're writing. That's a great thing in itself. But when people say how they understand you, how they feel the same way, how they like your painting, when they give you suggestions or tell their stories, then it feels even better!
So if you ever wrote here, please know that I loved reading every single comment and that I appreciate you taking the time to do it. Really.
Now, the painting:
And for my friends back in Brazil, Feliz Dia dos Namorados (that's "Happy Valentine's day" in Portuguese)!!!
