“FOUNDS FOR DOTTIE” 16 x 20 Collage/Assemblage

This has become a very special piece of art for me and is NFS. I created it for a dear friend several years ago and it hung in her bedroom until her untimely death. Her family, an exceedingly gracious group, returned it to me to keep in my personal collection. Having it seen and appreciated by others makes it even more favored.
