  2. Oh my gosh...these emote so!!! I love the color and freedom in them; the raw expression and use of incredibly bold strokes.
    And I am sitting here cutting papers and trying to get some transfer paper made for positioning elements on two pieces--mirror images....
    I'll trade you in a minute!
    Take care my friend ♥♥♥

    XXOO~~
