Larry - what a joy to see your images. Have no idea how the Lord I was able not to see your images for so long!!! I still remember my deep admiration for your image - The grandfather's desk shortly after I joined AM3. I lost your page and I am glad I found it again. You must be in my favorites.

wonderful, Larry, just wonderful. It looks like you may have added a texture here?

11 Dec 2010 4:59pm
