These are gorgeous! I love his alphabet... not sure why but I can't seem to access any of the files, nothing seems to happen when I click on the images. Were you able to download them, Jessica?

Sweet! :-)

I'd better not let Courtney see these, or she may insist on some changes for Grandma. ;)

Yep, they worked for me. Although I just tried again, and it seems to be taking a little longer for the pages to load—I get a blank screen for a few seconds after clicking a thumbnail, then the image shows up. Once you're past the thumbnail, click "1920 × 1080 pixels", or whatever the link is above the large image, to download the biggest size. Right-click on a PC or control-click on a Mac to save the file to your computer.

Thanks for finding my work!
Glad you like it!

My site was very slow yesterday because of all your visits, so it might take a second to load, indeed.

Greetings all the way from Belgium,

Willem

These are lovely! Thanks for sharing.

Nathalie: The gnome is not mine, it's a homage to the Dutch illustrator/painter Rien Poortvliet. He made a great book on gnomes.
