WOW! Sorry this is so belated, Chris...I am still making my way through all the Finalists. Super Congratulations to you! This is truly spectacular - what extraordinary work! So much going on - beautifully composed - and then such artistry (and patience) to do your own hand-tinting! Next up...GOLD, I'm sure!
