I don't know - technically great, but why?

Reminds me of Sadie Valerie's work with wax paper only not as good.

Exquisite. The paintings are not only technically brilliant but beautifully remniscent of the humanity inhabiting them. Margaret has an extraordinary ability to evoke the ghost in the threads.
In the "flesh" they are jewels!
No wonder so many have sold.
