  7. Hi Mattias!
    I wanted to tell how much I liked your inks. Somehow, they've cheered me up today. You see, I'm in a middle of a creative block or crisis, and looking at these pictures made me realize how important it is to enjoy one's work.
    So thanks!
    All the best,
    Matias

    Would it be all right with you if I post a picture of the Housetree watercolor on my facebook page? I'll credit it to you, of course. I just want to share it with my friends.

    It's all right if you don't agree. I'd understand.

    Thanks!
