I immediately was drawn to this artwork and now I have it proudly hanging in my living room. I just love it!
Beautiful little print
I love her creative and detailed little prints- this one will be a gift for a friend for Christmas. I have placed it in an 8x8 wooden frame, matted to 4x4, and it looks wonderful and classy. VERY high quality paper.
