    I knew this piece was yours as soon as I saw it. You have a distinctive style. I really love it.

    I would love to see the tiny flowers that you talk about too.

    Another great piece.

    Keep them coming, Pete.

    Thanks Angela! Most of my recent botanical pieces are either oversized and not as convenient to scan, or they were commissions that went out the door before proper documentation. With the help of some of the FAQs and postings here on RB, I’m looking forward to getting images of my larger pieces. And posting them!
