  1. You are a Bartist! : ) Great that you have "art" built right into your name. Thanks for sharing your creativity with us! I love your books and I loved being on the faculty of Southampton Writers Conference with you in 2011!

  2. I also love your son's dot! : ) Now I see where you get your talent, Chris!

  3. Aww.
    I favor Dot #2 by the artist known as Son, without a doubt.
