I really like the textural effects you've given this, as well as the golden tones and muted colors. This has an old world quality to it that I find appealing. #174446

Wow! You guys are so great! I really appreciate your stopping in and leaving such wonderful feedback! I thought it had an old world quality, too. Kind of like Tuscany with the gold/orangey tone. I'm pretty sure I put it in the digital darkroom category, Debby. And just for some trivia; the bowl was handmade by a friend of mine in NC. :-) #818195
