a visual feast!

Well I am so overly excited this morning - I've been waiting in anticipation to get my hands on my parcel that's been sitting on the kitchen table all week!!! Because today is my birthday and a couple of months ago I commissioned Robyn Gordon from the blogsite Artpropelled to make my birthday present. Robyn is an amazing woodcarver who lives in South Africa. On her blog she showcases artists from all over the world, I drool at the feast of imagery with every post. I am so thrilled to be the proud owner of a Robyn Gordon and ofcourse I just had to blog about it. It has found a prominent place in my place and here it is...

And some close-ups for you...

Then when looking around my house I realised I've got a great little art collection growing...
