Thanks Nelson .  As i've said before I'm making up for lost time for 40 years i didn't even scribble,   unlike you i don't have a job and  have the time,  you've said you haven't got a dedicated space  were i have art stuff at hand all the time so I have all the advantages.   A lot of other people seem to be struggling to produce at the moment so i'm sure  there'll be a right time for you soon. I'll let you in to a secret i've finally started to slow down and I've had days even with my low standard that everything has ended up screwed up in the bin.   You're work  does need you too be in the right mood for concentration for the planing out whereas my is just doodling with paint as most of the time I don't have the faintest idea what I'm doing until I'm finished. Doing Watercolours has made me do some planing but I try and keep it to the minimum as stuff i plan to much ends up in the bin.

Good luck and I hope things start falling into place for you soon

Best wishes paul

Hello Dear Nelson thank-you so much for your kind comment on my Poppy. Sorry to hear you are still struggling I sure know what that is like !!!  After nearly a year & a fractured wrist  I'm actually feeling like I may start once again. I've wanted to paint for ages now but just couldn't get started. I'll look foward to seeing your wonderful art as I'm sure you will l start again very soon !! Take care, sending you hugs, Lyn x
