I had to look up about the Emperor Hui-tsung. He died tragically in exile which makes it especially wonderful that his art lives on. So simple and yet so exquisite, and we can all share it on a postcard.

I like your Halloween banner, your Adams quote, and your "imperialistic" painting, too. :)
Good moves, Mary!
