Thank you for a lovely message. I had not seen the sea paintings you do. I like them too. You might like the work of a friend of mine (photography) she takes images of lots of stuff but relating to yours is her dork with sea water. Dreamy. Maud x

Not sure how to respond back to your comment, but I'm glad I could help even though it's disappointing! I hope it's one they add soon--for now, definitely rework it! Your other items here are beautiful. I know we don't have a lot of time left for this contest, but I bet you could find something that compliments your beautiful background illustration!
