I should Mel Annie  and I will!

Porkenigma that is great! Obviously, graphic art is your thing, that is where you shine. I wish I could think of doing something like that. I have a tendency to add a figure. I am a figurative artist and abstracts do not come easily to me.

Comment by Carien van Hest on April 7, 2021 at 9:58pm

Of course Fike, I could read that clearly!

Comment by Ficus strangulensis on April 7, 2021 at 9:41pm

this is partially asemic, the part in which the page is partly 'redacted'.
