  7. HI lesley, It does look fun, interesting to see same painting but different. I hope it is warmer down your way, freezing here and glad I am not going on the stormy shore. millyx

    1. Thanks Carol - lovely and sunny here today, hope that it's shining where you are. x

  9. I happen to love the original, it is full of energy and is simply stunning. I can appreciate playing with the image with software - I have a hankering for quilt designing software, but I fear I'd end up on the PC and never getting round to sewing!

    1. Belated reply - don't know how I managed to miss this. Thanks Kim. x
