One of my all time favorites. I have been wanting to emulate it somehow. I just could never impose.Oh, how great this is. I've even seen people use it for inspirational quotes and stuff.

One of my favorites of all time. Just purchased your canvas print of it in 13" x 24" from Society 6 to hang in my 1910 home. <3 Thank you so much Charlie; this piece means more to me than you know!
