Heather | 8545 comments I think this is fun and I am learning a lot myself from what I read about different artists. Hope you are enjoying this folder and subject, too!

I'm writing this in this particular thread to put it toward the top because it is the only one so far that hasn't been guessed.

Any more guesses as to who this might be?
