    very nice prints each one is different in its own way and the styles vary so I cant pick on over another thats a compliment.

    Stunning work, as always. I just love seeing your work, Anja! Always so imaginative and colorful.

    I love #1 - such a clever idea! :D

    Your bridal portraits are especially beautiful. You're such a good artist. :heart:

    "Niece" is the right word for a child of your sister's, yes. I think she would be happy with any of them, but of those three, my personal fave is #8. Very painterly effect, and I love your rich deep colors here.

    Wonderful series!

    Hi, I commented on some other images you posted. I've never heard the expression "wood prints" May I ask how you do them, or is that a professional secret ?? They are very effective and moody.

    thanks alot, guys!! :heart:

    Thank you, Philip! and no, generally its not a secret -;)
    'Wood prints' are just regular prints, but made at the wood - i work at them as i work with a paper print at the darkroom, than i do some chemistry and than i paint them with oils. Thas the whole secret -;)

    Terri, ive just gave this one to my sister, thanks for help with making a decission!:hug::

    # 1, 9 and 10 are my faves! You are such a talented woman, I love your work! :hugs:

    If I was a mother, having a wood print like #10 would be awesome. It'd be one of my treasures.
