Money for Old Rope

Looks good to me...

Oh my god how ever did you manage this one.It is so clever - light against dark is great. I don't know whether I would have the patience. Talking about nightmares, Some paintings have given me nightmares literally! Very well don Val. Whilst I am here I shall post a couple.

So this is it Val - THE challenge - can see why - as a former draughtsman I can appreciate the intricacy & accuracy needed to complete it - bet it took over your life for a while - love the light & shade which gives depth - wouldn't like to untangle them - excellent.
