I got the inspiration for this piece from a book by J. Cirincione a wonderful collage artist (and when I sent it in I explained where I had gotten the inspiration from - no hidden agenda's here) This was made for for Dad's 93rd birthday. Dad taught me to play cards, and ice skate and a million other things. Bad picture but a piece made with love.
Anyway, the moral is - if you ask for work follow up with the person who sent it to you. You can be polite and reject something without being nasty. Just follow up!!!
