      "Just because Shelley Thayer Layton's still life is about 9 inches square doesn't make it cheap any more than a thimble-size bauble from Cartier could be had in a gum ball machine. Why not stop into the Newbury Street Gallery and have a look at these little beauties? No two of these works are alike."
