This is so cool! I love how you make such beautiful art with things you find/reclaim. It is such a wonderful way to look at the world and discarded things. Thank you! And your haiku is really pretty.

love it, the colours all meld together perfectly, and the haiku just fits the art.

Really like this too. Especially the contrast between your "tree" and it's background.

Melanie - I'm going to try in the future to list my materials more often, I think it could be interesting!

Carra- let me know if you do try something similar yourself, I'd be interested to have a look!

Lee, Deb, Aquamarine, Polona - thanks!
