  1. Looking forward to meeting you, Marlies….you have to be a ‘colorful character.’ That, or all of it comes out in your paintings and you’re really an introvert, eh? =]

  2. The dingo skull and flowers is an intriguing mix Marlies the dead dry bone of the skull and those exotic flowers, captures your attention.

  3. Hi Nolan, I am indeed a colourful introvert πŸ™‚
    Thanks, Susan for your feedback. I’ll keep working on the background and hopefully it will all come together.
