Joyful abstract flowers

For today I went back into childhood when all seemed so easy and perfect and I created this simple page with abstract round flowers.

A sketch has its charming look and will always be more interesting and catchy than a photography could ever be. Cred ca ar trebui sa schitez cladiri mai des, dar e cam greu sa captezi frumusetea lor in locatie daca vremea nu …
