You need to start doing canvases of this type of thing. You have the talent. And Sell them around, people would go crazy for them. I would buy a big print of this one for my living room!!!!

This is very pretty Kristen. I like the linen texture better, and I think the color on v1 is more pop and fun. But this one has a soft and subtle beauty. They are all great!
