Sorry to hear your sad news Linda. Thank you. As you say painting helps soothe the mind x

Best wishes to your Dad Dawn, I know what its like to get not very good news, but look for some blue sky, just as there is in your really nice painting, love the cloud work top right and the low horizon cloud, nice one. Thought for the day, A day never ends, it just rests for a while and wakes refreshed. Just a little something I came up with a long time ago and it has helped me through some tough times.

That's lovely Malcome I will remember that.

Hang on Studio Wall

It's been a really really tough week. My dad is very ill and the prognosis is very poor, so I've struggled to paint. Gently reading myself in with this. Pastels over inktense under painting. Ref photo taken by my son.
