    Love what you’ve done with the building blocks in this design. The colors are a wonderful reflection on the painting, too.

    Perfect colors inspired by Bellotto, I’m found of his work as he live in Poland for some time and painted our capital city Warsaw. I might join you if I find courage :D

    WOW! Great colors and textures. I like that the stones and beads “pop” while the wirework adds the texture. :)
