and the manifestation of nature agree to find new shapes."

Love, love. Ha! I knew Victoria's work on sight; her signature style grabs me every time.

Sweet picks-I gotta check out this haiku contest...I'm generally too verbiose for the art of haiku, but one never knows!

Victoria said...

The license plate wall quilt is fantastic, and I dig those 3-D textured wall tiles!

(Also, I was so surprised to see my work included in this collection! Thanks Charmaine, I needed a pick me up today, and you certainly gave me one! xo)
