Congratulations! You deserve the DD! I love how the colors - which are normally so in contrast - are synched simultaneously and blend together so beautifully within the effects of a water color like apperance. You have no idea how it made my smile grow so wide, and become at peace while I loose myself in looking over the details and beauty of this piece! Truly breath taking. Bravo to you sir/ma'm.
