A Final Note:

I have a lot of convos to reply to and am getting through each as quickly as I can.
Thank you to everyone for the honesty, feedback, support and thoughtful questions.

I think the topic of idea theft will always be heated,
everyone has an opinion and nobody has a mild one.

I appreciate the opportunity to have been heard and to hear you back.
And to those who see things as I do,
or can respect our differences without condescension and sarcastic needling,
you mean more to me than you know.

Warmly,
Jess

  9. i admire all your work, jj, but those first two pieces are ALIVE!!!! they feel like they have living breath in them to me, like they move and flutter-- the first one especially is some kind of gorgeous creature; the second one, come to think of it, reminds me of a victorian ceiling -- the centerpiece of the ceiling -- so ornate and gorgeous --some of those, however, were based on the classifications of scientifice creatures which were drawn during that time and shown to have that kind of amazing, delicate symmetry in their structure, particularly sea creatures. anyway, i just feel LIFE in your pieces, and it moves me to tears, jj! truly wonderful.

  17. I think everyone has already said everything possible and there are no more adjectives left- so I will make up a new word to describe your new works!They are "sublimicious" stemming from sublime and combined with delicious.
    Feel free to use my new word in the future!! :)
