Ok thinking of doing this Build here, is going to take some time. This is getting built for a client of mine, client bought this print with the idea of what she is looking for, but wants my interpretation on this print so I took it apart an it gave me some ideas. But I will be making a new print in what I want to do. The original print is from Judy Gale Roberts. I like the print but the build is not enough to bring it to life an dimension that I want, I posted pictures below of the print with my notes an her Judy's picture of her build.

So what you guys an gals think if I do it here besides my School Page

This class is going to take a couple months so please bear with me

This class will be on my School page, just click the link below

It would be AWESOME if you could post a build thread on this. You do inspiring work, Roy, and we all would benefit from it. I realize that it would take ALOT of work on your part, but please know that it would be much appreciated.

I truly look forward to seeing this come together!
