I vividly recall walking the isles of the local five-and-dime, hoping that I could convince my mother to buy me a paint-by-number kit. More recently I've been scouring the fields of Round Top for vintage pieces since none of my early works were kept. But THIS! THIS is a fantastic modern spin on the craft. I love that the backgrounds are printed-in as this adds a depth and sophistication unmatched in the early kits. Makes a terrific gift.
