I have read this thread so many times in the past without commenting, because I simply couldn't believe how talented people can be! I don't have any artistic talents whatsoever. My only talent is to exist through hard work on a daily basis, and that's that.

I admire all the artistic people on this thread! :clap: :clap: :clap:
