Out of Africa...

Morning all,

This is a slightly different post today, I am not going to blog one of my cards, but I am going to showcase the art of a young Kenyan student who befriended me on fb.  His name is Robin Samwel Kagunyi, he is a 27 year old student who sells his cards to help raise money to pay for his education.

He sent me some of his cards, so I can sell them in the UK, but they are on quite thin card, so I have remounted them
The painting is Robin's work

This is how Robin sent them ...

...and this is one after I'd changed it - it is a bit less than  6'' x 6'' white hammered card.  I also added a black mat under the picture
Have I improved it or taken away the simple charm?

Please let me know
Have a lovely day
Janet xx
