Beautiful! I especially love the breakup of the white space by the little branches and the colour changes that occur in them. Delicate, rythmic, and lovely.

Hi Jane,
Nice work. I have been checking your blog for sometime already and I read in your previous post that you just finished your course with the London Art College. I checked their site and I think they did not give any duration for each course. Does that mean that the course duration depends on the students when they want to finish? I am interested to enroll. Thanks.

Dear Jane,
Lovely work that reminds me of your "thistles." Wish you a very Happy New Year!
Cheers, Sadami

Dear Jane,
Lovely lavoro che mi ricorda la tua "cardi". Vi auguriamo un Felice Anno Nuovo!
Cheers, Sadami
