Murry, Cecilia is getting married soon.
I gave her a print for her wedding present.
Thanks Darren.
I don't have the original 'unbuzzed' version posted, Barbara.
This is the same as the first time I entered it.
Pat, I've actually printed this on glossy, satin and matte papers.
I'll have to look into a watercolor paper.
I've never tried it.
