John Potts ...mummy boasting


It’s fabulous, Sylvia. He’s captured the concentration on his face.

Talented lad - hopefully he will take it up again.

Thank you I will pass your positive comments onto him ,he’s in his forties now and hopefully this will act as a spur to him picking up a pencil again.

It a great painting , shame if he doesn’t pick it up again. Talent clearly runs in the family.

15? Blimey Sylvia, that is talent! He’s a natural.

That’s excellent work Sylvia
