Fancy Mushroom Diorama

December 27, 2011

No matter how many orbits around the sun I might make in my lifetime, I never seem to be so old that I do not give over to the naïve childlike love of color, lots and LOTS of big color. Furthermore, I confess my sensibilities are tickled to the core by a wonderfully off-kilter element.
