This is fabulous, Jason! A really evocative feel here thanks greatly to the light emanating from the lighter center. I get "campfire" flashbacks with this - it really does remind me of a romantic and fun (aren't campfires always fun anyway?) Campfire. The colours are just magnificent - what a beautiful rose. And a PERFECT job of leading the eye directly to the exit no escape I LOVE that part of this especially my man! Awesome!!
