Thanks so much for including my artwork in this fantastic post Eric. I love the picture of Louise Bourgeois and the accompanying quote. And Tapies is one of my most favorite artists. Much appreciation.

I've always been drawn to the hand cave paintings and love Seth's pieces together in a photo mosaic.

Via Seth's blog kom ik bij jou. Ik bekijk eens alles op mijn gemak en ja, als ik een blogpost met 'mijn motto' tegenkom ('there's a crack in everything, that's how the light gets in') ben ik verkocht! Je staat nu op mijn lijstje!
