  4. ...and every work is beautyful Lorna....!I love them all.... Glad your back is a little bit better, but care for it...!

  5. Buy one? I want to BE any one of those beautiful things! I'm not sure a trip to a museum has ever filled me up as much as this display, Lorna. I have long loved dia de los muertos images. Your painted lilies are gorgeous. And that image - not sure how to describe it properly, so I shall simply count - 4th up from the bottom: oh the rich bronze feel of it! Thank you, once again, for sharing your light with us.

  6. What a beautiful spectrum of your talent in this post, Lorna!
    I'm excited that you'er going to take the plunge and set up a shop too.
    I had never seen your painted stuff...quite lovely. Amazing delicate stitch work on the border of the brown piece with lettering....and I must say this is a spectacularly inspiring post!
