My newest creation.
Made this for a friend who needs a bit of a pick-me-up.

It's beautiful, Amanda.  If that doesn't cheer her up, I don't know what will.   :glasses9:

She's actually a member of this forum but I'm not saying her name because she doesn't know it's coming!   :icon_sunny:

I like what you did with the red in the bezel- very clever design there my friend.

Thanks Gina!  I did that to balance out the red of the small cab with the other side of the design.  Typically using a bold color like that in one area of a design you want to also use it someplace on the opposite side for color balance and visual balance so the viewer's eye is drawn across the piece from one side to another and not just focused on one spot.

You are very welcome Krystee!  I enjoyed making the piece knowing it was going to a good home where it will be much loved!   :headbang: :icon_sunny: :thumbsup: :love10:

Randy:  Thanks.  Once we can get the Paypal thing working, I want to auction off a piece to support the forum.
