Super idea and lasting memories with each step up and down! Can't wait to see them in person... Doing an all-nighter must've been somewhat exhilarating - just flowing...hope rest came in full doses!

Island Cottage Art and Design

I painted a door mat in front of my garage door. It has seen its fair share of shoes and
puppy paws for more than 15 years, and the design is still visible and inviting to those
that enter the back door.

Life is so much better in color! Your artwork is beautiful!
