I just wanted to tell you that I really enjoyed your classes! I will probably take more from you in the future. I appreciate you so much as a teacher! You are always so knowledgeable and you put a lot of effort into your classes! That is important! Also the subject matter was a bit of a challenge, which is what I really loved! Thank you, CZ

Thank you Howard for your many suggestions! I will be experimenting! I always learn so much from your classes. I think your reflections in the water were outstanding! I’m going to keep working on mine!  EC
