You're a fantastic artist, Norma. I'm so glad that I happened upon your blog through Pinterest. What a serendipitous happy accident! I see that over the years, you're posting less and less. I hope that you don't take down your blog. *Love* your work! Truly eye candy that's pleasurable to behold. Thanks *so* much for sharing.
