    Beautifully done, Janice. Your attention to detail has separated each petal and given it the needed dimensional quality to make this a delight. I can smell the fragrance of a blown rose…the pinks are so heady. I would encourage you to continue exploring this medium as you have taken to it like a duck to water :o) Warm regards ~Renee

  • Thank you very much Renee, for your comment and encouragement! MUCH appreciated!!
