    I love your art, the vibrance of colors, the depths of textures, and the beauty of butterfly’s. GODS wonderful creatures like the many facets of colors in a hummingbird, the swiftness of its wings, what a beautiful bird to sip nectar from a flower with a beak that GOD sculpted for that perpose. So much beauty in creation, so fresh and exhilarating.
