Love the framing work done here Ray and it actually lets our eyes draw right to the center which I find so unique and beautiful. The orchid is one of the most beautiful flowers and your work here really lets us enjoy the colors and features of it.
I must say that I am so enjoying the creative and well done work you are doing with the pencils, the spool of threat, your still life work is on a masters level.
Incredible work and gallery my friend.
Have a most fantastic day. #9880968
