Ho l'impressione che tu voglia dissolvere le forme e i colori, forse per un desiderio di libertà e di leggerezza? Ciao.

I love it too! Jane, I love the pot area with the little highlight and blue shadows. I'd love to do a full sheet one of these days.. the freedom to explore appeals to me. I'm sure this looks stunning IRL!
