You always make such fabulous compositional use of the white of your paper, Margaret. Your colours make my mouth water, they are so zingy.

Looks like a treasure chest---cause I know what gems it contains!

Are you crawling today? Brrr in Denton, Tx today, but I will be there!

Beyond words beautiful, Margaret! I agree that the white space works very well in this one, and then the beauty of your frame, fitting words into it ... speechless at your talent!
