Piet, If I had taken the first, I would jump up and down and leave it alone. But, I am eager to see what you do.

Free associating--in the first I see Elvira Madigan, Van Gogh, and Christina's World. It's bedtime I guess. Matt

Re: Canna Whimsy - Fingerwork #4

I love hidden treasures and surprises. I look at the image and say - "blurred/textured flower, yellows and oranges". Then I say, "nice clock". And then, "OMG, she is looking at me! - she is beautiful". Love how she peaks out of the blue into the yellow. The notes on the right side strike me as an a...
