Hi Dennis,

I would also gladly accept a copy of the book signed or otherwise.  Can’t wait to get it.

Do you have a title for it yet?

Here's another thought - send a postcard thanking those who purchase the book.  Although it's not the same as signing the book itself, we could then put it in the book.

Musika’s idea is the best– then we could meet you too!

Wow...this is fantastic!  Yeah...I will order one, just put it on Val's bill!!   :2funny:

Seriously, I would be honored to have a signed book from our very own tutor. Wow.  Congrats, Dennis, and what a wonderful gift to our children as they have watched us grow in our paintings. You have really been busy over Xmas holidays!
How is the heat there in Auckland?  Pretty scary in places near to you. Be safe....be cool.
Again, thank you for your work and effort....so appreciated and respected. You and Nolan are very special to us all.

Looks like that number 1 copy might have a pretty little price on it's head...

 >:D

Oh! Dennis, Magnigicent!!!  How appropriate to have the Cosmos on the front cover for that is what really got me into painting and it brings back such warm and encouraging feelings within.  When are the copies available for order?  Thank you for sharing your talents and gifts with the World.  Bless you.  Patricia

 :thankyou: Glad everyone likes the cover.  :clap: The choice was actually a no-brainer - by far the most popular on the forum posts. All my own work and design from cover to cover.

Got notice yesterday that the proof has been shipped to me. Can't wait to see what the actual book looks like :whistle:

 :congrats:   Dennis!  This is so exciting!   :yippee:

I'm looking forward to the book.  ....and oh yes, the T-shirt! 

Don't forget I want a Paintbasket T-shirt!   :)
