It looks great to me,  my paints go with me everywhere for these snatched painting  moments, waiting for grandkids sporting activities,  hospital  waiting  room  is always a good place as people tend to leave the seats next to me empty for some reason

Thank you Harry.  Thank you Kathy, I’m really happy with your comment!  Thanks Mark, I’m a big fan of your work, amazing details.  Thanks Mark...yeah I bet!  The problem I have here is that it’s such a small community 1000  residents, everybody knows everybody...so you feel a little conscious of people around you...everybody stops!!!  Anyway, I feel like it’s probably more in my head the problem then with others...so I push myself to “get out there”. But it stresses me sometimes...I sit there painting, half of me loves it the other half is screaming ‘hurry up and finish!!  Haha!thank you so much Mary!  Yes, Nelson, I was pretty happy with the time, thanks lovey.

Hi Gail The first time i tried painting outside someone stood behind and i ran for cover and hid in my car because i was embarrassed  . Now my paint kit for my scribble go everywhere, people have got used to seeing me and don't  take any notice. I'm  more than happy to let people look at my scribble pad  that way they might look at my other stuff and maybe buy something.
