I LIKE THE SOFT PASTEL COLORS USED .. THEY ARE MATCHING SO WELL ..MY PIC

Artist Reply: the softening effect is partly due to the spray enamel is applied to the reverse of the panel and then the outlinging on the other side of the glass in black makes the constrast of the paint even more subdued..Thank you Marie.
