    Love the abstract feel to this piece…Great colors and texture…..T

  • Thanks so much, Thomas, I’m really glad you enjoyed this one! I already loved the texture in the natural one and I thought this would be a good chance to experiment with that grunge style – I’m glad it seemed to be getting a reasonable response. Thanks for the encouragement!
