um I think you asked if I wanted to put a picture in your gallery but when I got to the message I'd seen it was withdrawn. I just got on my computer five minutes ago. Was there a time limit or something? I had to do my laundry this morning. So can you ask me again and I'd say yes?

This group only accepts contributions from members.  Another user may have submitted your art, which was not approved by an administrator because it was submitted by someone other than the artist.  Please feel free to submit it yourself!
