just checking in my friend...life has been a bit wonky on this side of the monitor and the distractions have been more than numerous...hope you are doing well
I Totally Love your Works...!! 💓
 Hello Margaret! Thanks for the comment on artin2007 profile....
 I have been traveling today through your gallery, which is as attractive as"insolite"(french):
 I don't know nothing about "collage"...
 Do you know what's going on for the South African painter Jfranken who's disappeared from DA
 when I came in 5 years ago?
 His portrait of a baby is wonderful. I hope he's selling his works...:) (Smile) 
The T.H. White quote is a _splendid_ one!

...so many beautiful things n your gallery here!! ...collage such as yours is endlessly addictive & inspirational!
Thank you so much!
