Take the High Road…

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. Monday’s blog Flowers and trees, right? Here is a piece I made using one of my favourite stencils: the Treescape.

Blue Treescape

Blue Treescape

Hi there! Thanks for popping in. On my way to London for a meeting, but Thursday’s Blog is always blue, right?
