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!
