Re: Dogwood

I am enjoying the "sharpness" of the background. I like the depth that it seems to provide giving us the subject, a middle and a further back type of feel.

Re: Ghost of Arlington

Re: Judas Tree - spring study

My 3 minutes of research indicates that perhaps the glass casing was filled with alcohol (which perhaps preserved the body in a ...
