Enough of the sneak peeks...

Here's the full canvas!



Dimensions are 40cm wide by 30cm high.

The story behind the canvas: My dear friend Sam is moving to Johannesburg, and this was the farewell "card" from her office. I had originally planned on an exploding box, with pictures of her and wonderful colleagues to decorate the box, but when she told me she was doing something similar, plans had to be changed. So, the canvas was born.

I mailed a list of word stamps to the office, requesting that each person chose a word that they felt epitomosed their friend and colleague - and well, now you know how the rest goes.

After all my teasers and sneak peeks I hope it has lived up to its' full reveal!

TFL!
