    wow these are wonderful!!

  • Your comments always make me smile, Linda!! Thank you. What I liked about this scene was how the wrought iron has the nice organic appearance as do the vines as they begin to intertwine. Oh and the rust and greenery are complimentary colors. Hope you’ve been happy and productive. I need to drop by and see what you’ve been up to as well!
    Cordially, Ellen
