I’m redoing or revising in part some of the work I have done in the past before putting it up at my store at Etsy.

The border for the Foutz House has always bothered me, I made it out of Tarot cards but my initial attempt was sloppy, my later revision more ordered but not impactful. See below. And double click to call up a larger image.
