    Wonderful creation. I love the way you arranged these images.

  • Thank you so much Bunny. I was thinking “exposed” – that’s what she was – like Marilyn.
    Anything that put bread on the table. A 16 year old girl as breadwinner is not natural.

    You are not alone! I love this and it’s become another favourite. I know you don’t like to have your work pinned but I do wish I could promote it on Pinterest. I’m beginning to think this service might ultimately prove to be the best marketing tool of all. Anyway, I’m about to add this to my Facebook page and it will be automatically tweeted. Click on any of my pictures and you’ll see my FB page link in the description. Have a great weekend!

  • Dear Sarah, I am not on any social media. I don’t like their rules and there has been a lot of Forum posts and journals here by people who had their work copied and sold by other people as their own. Theft is the word.
    I do have a sneaking suspicion though that it will be worse and that there is not a lot we can do about the increasing “sharing” on any media. Personally I never go looking to see if one of my pictures happen to be on a site that a member have found one of hers on. … I can do without the aggravation and I pick my fights carefully.
    Warm hugs from a very cold Copenhagen xxx

    I completely understand, Kira. At the moment, I’m finding the advantages outweigh the disadvantages – this may change. I also get so much pleasure from promoting the work of people I admire. Equally warm hugs from me!

  • Know that I am very grateful for your lovely support Sarah. And if your mentioning of me results in people coming to RB to see more and hopefully buy my work, well that would be just great ☺ Thank you xx
