    very true B, if you look around (and i know you do), there is so much art in our surroundings, you dont need to go far, whether it be your shadows, your fence or even this ditch, its all beautiful and its all art, you have a great mind, and are using it wisely :)

  • ah thanks marina…. that’s what happens when a person can’t paint.. forced to find art in other places…ha………. i appreciate your kind words……… b
