    This picture tells such a wonderful story and is saturated with an elusive testoterone otherwise absent within the art community. Great subject matter and composition!

  • WoW! Thanks Michael…I suppose as a woman, I ahve a HUGE appreciation of testosterone! Thank you so much, and for the fave!

    Sounds wonderful :D

  • It’s fantastic Eva, we bought property with two houses, we are renovating one, but because we live outside 9 months of the year we are spending all our time working on the garden and terraces. We also have a gate that leads down to our 80m river frontage, its a wildlife sanctuary, Impossible to get captures, it is really wild! You would love it!
