  1. This is gorgeous! I can just see it spread open in an exhibit!

    1. Even I have to admit it's gorgeous and this is the path that has brought me to abstract art.

  2. Your work is great, the concertinas are fantastic, I love very much.

    1. Me too Carmina. We will be doing this at the MidSummer Maine workshop this summer. I wish you could be there.

  3. Lots of layers and variety! A minimalist you are not!
