one day these two women knock on the porch door and say, "val, we're here.let's have lunch!"

and then these three women will smile away for a few hours, talking about everything that matters and everything that doesn't....

What a gorgeous paradise, so colourful and bright and cheerful!

You continue to amaze me with the sheer volume of work you have stashed away! I missed last week's and yours is awesome. The retro look is also so strong design-wise and the old gas station is a perfect example.

Hi Val! Love your paradise. Trees! So sweet. Do you use resin for the varnish on your acrylics?

Wow the frame is such a gorgeous little detail with the little branch/leaves sticking into the art. I love how there are 2D and 3D elements in this. Very nice.
