  18. Hello Lynne

    I wanted to say thank you for your support and encouragement during the past year and for the enjoyment of seeing and sharing your work, which is always an inspiration.

    Wishing you A Merry Christmas from here in the UK.


  19. Lynn, I love that you leave your images big so you can see the detail when you click on them. The textures, layers, your lines, they feel so right, so comfortable, so real.
