palette knife painting is extremely challenging especially if youre trying to capture the fine details of a portrait but you made this look SO so good. even the before looks beautiful but i can't believe how well you blended it all in the "after" piece!!! LOVE seeing creative work like this.

Sifting through the dynamics of experimentation and innovative design, alongside the webbing art of styling/accessorizing, it's comes down to the blueprint details. So, it's no surprise that when owner, Michele Syre, contacted me, I was thrilled with the opportunity to collaborate and reconstruct the Dulken & Derrick Flower Pins she'd sent over. The only obvious answer was yes, but with vertiginous elation, I assure you.
