Please note: This website is free - there are no pop-up ads - no requests for financial support. It's my hobby and I'm happy so many people enjoy visiting. However, I do have one request for visitors - if you would like to view the portraits again and again, please save them to your computer. This will save data transfer for the site (which grows more popular by the month) and allow pictures to load faster. All new portraits will be listed at the What's New? page. Just click on over to see if you've missed an addition. Thanks, -Marilee
