Love this piece, saying that I received something rather special in the post today which made me laugh at the layers - I think you know what I am talking about ...... Hmmmm!

Would love to go in the draw for this piece truly I would. I am sure the Art and Soul crowd will go mad for your art which has just as much awesomeness as its creator.

I will simply tell you that i think its a noble and honourable gesture you are making, and that goodness will come back to you sevenfold from your generosity.
