I love the way you can make simple secateurs look artistic. You're control of the pigment on the wet paper is second to none.
Congratulations on your 3 years of blogging. ;-)

This one caught my attention on Eva's side bar - it is so striking in its simplicity! Your use of shadow and light is also excellent.

Ciao Jane,
ogni oggetto è per te un mondo di forme e colori da esplorare e ciò è molto bello soprattutto perchè riesci a dare una "personalità" agli oggetti che dipingi...
