When I was a kid, I love the carousel very much, actually I still do now. This classic and vintage looking necklace certainly reminds me of my younger years.

Now we go for a more “serious” one, the Madonna Drawing Study of Raphael. This beautiful print is sketched by hand in graphite then scanned and painted in Adobe Photoshop. The image area is 10 x 8 and then printed via inkjet on archival Hahnemuhle water color paper (8 1/2 x 11). US$28.

Renata and Jonathan Rose Red Embrace Print

Crave for something more romantic and emotive? I present you this lovely Rose Red Embrace that’s originally created in watercolor and now is printed on 7 x 7 fine archival watercolor paper. What an art! US$32.
