[Rosa Carela Bernstein] - A massive oyster shell after the meat has been slurped off the shell. Breathtaking.
[Genya Havrachynsky] - In tone, pattern, and mood, it resembles the work of a few Russian artists who post on Facebook. Hmmm. At first glance, I mistook your photo for one of their paintings. You have such a good eye for beauty.
