Some of the "Sweets" series are really satisfying to look at, some are nothing more than a pile of cakes.
Not impressed with the wigs. Incongruous images. The animals looked contrived and out of place. The wigs didn't morph, they just had some out of place thing tangled into them.

I do enjoy your artwork also....
really creative and fun to look at...nice use of space and color too...very good

I love your art work,"Beautiful" A DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH.
