Datha you are such a talent. Every time I mosey on over to you gallery I am taken back with the beauty and originality!

You take chances and in doing so you have learned so much. That's the only way to go! To keep on learning and keep on trying new things...(and yet, through it all, you have a style of your own).

That is so cool to me!

Wonderful job here!

This is my favorite of your December entries, Datha. I love the composition, the clarity and color, and of course your darling niece is the perfect model.
My other favorites were endearing, Hey Santa Claus, and Shining Through (never get tired of that one). Good Luck.
