Patricia- They say some of the worlds best known masters of art come from this side of the world and I can see why from this gorgeous work of art you were there where you belong, among the masters. This look is stunningly beautiful. What a work of art with the composition, I love the colors and textures and feel of the picture. The details of the house are gorgeous and I love the landscape its found in. I especially love the depth and the gorgeous view of the background.
You are gifted my friend.
Have a most wonderful day. #9015772
