  8. Somehow i can feel, how she is feeling in her arms and legs, when I look at this marvellous jewel. The painter feels, what she is feeling and shows us a wonderful bridge from earth to sun and heart and balance.

  17. She's adorable. I couldn't work THAT small and make anything that beautiful. She's an inspiration.

    I had the same problem with red looking pink to me when I diluted it by dyeing fabric.
