    Stunning work Victiria!

  • thanks ever so much, my friend! you are most kind. when i saw the sequence in my library, it cried out for a triptych. it was fun trying to figure out how to do this.

    I love the triptyc approach to these.. A wonderful creation and capture..dennis
  • my thanks, dennis. you are very kind. will give this one another go. figured out how to put it together quite late, & the light of day showed me my errors. the flavor is what i was looking for, but technically, there are a few things that need re-tooling. :-/ back to the “drawing board” lol
