Spring cleaning

lovely Marjorie they look great and the painting

Lovely memory of their childhood Marjorie! You really have caught the moment of concentration and action.

Thanks a lot Dennis and Satu - you can imagine the mess. We gave the windows another once over when they had gone. Kids just love water.

They can clean mine any day!

Just what I like to see, they're earning their keep. Great scene...nostalgic and beautifully done.

Super piece of work Marjorie a fabulous composition

This fills me with joy, Marjorie.

Then you cleaned up after them. A lovely painting and a lovely memory.

Beautiful as always Marjorie

Absolutely beautiful

Super scene Marjorie and a great memory.

Thanks all - don't think they'd be volunteering now!

Lovely Marjorie, a really nice way to catch the children enjoying themselves.

Beautiful subject beautifully captured Marjorie

This is wonderful and reminds me of my twins when they were little! How cleverly you have suggested detail without actually painting it!

Thanks for the comment Jackie. They are 11 and 13 now.
