My Photo
Location: Camano Island, Washington, United States

I like cheesecake, horses, sparkly pretties, and painting. I dislike listening to people chew, stalkers, and a bunch of other things. My favorite color is red.

If I had that glass of bubbly I would be imagining some great things too!! The second image definately has strong crisp lines, nice contrast of colors. Bold! Gorgeous work!!!!
