Hi Bri I remember this very well and take my hat off to you for your tenacity towards perfection. You have achieved a very professional, outstandingly, beautiful painting. I hope the tranquility of your painting reflects on those people who are suffering in the NHS and elsewhere.

Great painting Brian and agree totally with your sentiments

Certainly looks very etherial, a very effective painting.

Thank you very much, Carole, Heather and Stephen, for the very kind comments. Always appreciated. Too kind, Carole, but I'm delighted with your comments. Our minds are never far away from this tragic pandemic and the people on the front line. Yes, Heather, I feel like I've never felt before. Funny how something like this can open your eyes to stark reality. Maybe they'll now get that pay rise. "Ethereal and effective" does it for me, Stephen. Thanks for mentioning it. Best to all Bri

Just seen your post, Sandra. Thank you very much for the warm comment. Bri

I echo your sentiments re the NHS Bri, this pandemic acts as a reminder of how what they do for us and how much they are taken for granted. This is a beautiful painting it reminds me of waking up to such a view after a night of snowfall when everything is crisp and fresh.

Thanks a lot, Barry. I appreciate the comments very much. Yip, they're doing us proud. Bri

Yes I remember this Brian, it's beautiful.

Thank you very much indeed, Maureen and Carole, for the generous comments, AND for taking the time to tell me. Much appreciated. Bri

I missed this at the time, Bri - beautiful! and a wonderful tribute.

Thank you very much, Margaret. Glad you liked this little tribute. Appreciated. Bri

Oil on canvas, 50 x 40 cms. I posted this painting a few months ago but have now finished with my revisions. It's bluefully appropriate, I thought. *smile* Like many of you, if not all, I've found the work and commitment of ALL the NHS workers to be inspiring. It's quite a humbling experience to watch their commitment from the lockdown of our home. I know we're all in the firing line but hey, my hat is well and truly off. Best to all
