so pretty! I knew you would do a great job on this one when I saw what the theme was this week!

Beautiful work! I love all the textures and details. I found a 4 leaf clover once when I was a kid. I thought it would be easy to find another one and gave it away to a friend. I am yet to find another 4 leaf clover :/

I'm still looking for my four-leave clover. I hope she will find him. Again a great job. I like the expression on her face. Desperate searching for her lucky charm.

A lovely wistful picture! Beautiful tones and perspective. One of my daughters found a four leaf clover a few years ago and I kept it, but I've looked thousand of times since and don't expect to see another one again!
