    These are wonderful and so generous of you. Is there a reason you don’t give credit to the artist whose work you show? I would love to know who some of them are.

      It’s already a lot of work as it is and I don’t have a good system yet to keep track of names with the photos. Those I know I could caption, but then not all. But maybe some are better than none?

    Wonderful Sharings, Polly! Thank you!!

    Let’s just figger that Divine Soul is the Source of all our Creativity! This is how I get past
    wanting to label all art with the artist’s name or credit. Mebbe that’s just ego anyhoo. But, I know…I know… people want credit… so do I!
