Hello Jeanne,
It is always a pleasure to stop by your blog. you're so talented. I like also your thinking about art and your coming works. You are very inspiring.


Thank you SO much, Helene! We creative souls who are inspired by Nature have an overwhelming need to reproduce what we see in all manner of appreciation, whether it be photographs, paintings, poetry, etc. I must reciprocate the compliment about your blog as well. Thank you! Jeanne
