Yes but the picture is so complex for young people today with the advancement of technology it's 24 hour pressure. I have 2 daughters and I teach them to ignore the crap that they see on Instagram, snapchat etc. - luckily for me they feel able to talk to me about things and we can unpick any incidents online or at school etc. I wouldn't want to be their age again with all that going on. Thank god for art and music !!!!!!

Hi, Yes I was really influenced by their education system where outdoor learning is a large part of their ethos for young people. I did see the other side too - there is a high suicide rate and alcohol problem but it is a harsh climate and they tend to internalise a lot of their personal problems. I think they are miles ahead on issues like anti-bullying and climate change etc. I am sure I will enjoy my trip as it will be spring and the snow will have melted! Have a nice day!

Hi RL,

No I haven't watched it but I will because I actually used to live in Helsinki funnily enough - so will watch for the scenery alone. I am going back to Finland for a party in a couple of months time so I will be sure to catch it before I go! Thanks for all the comments on my facebook page too!

Hi RL,

Thanks for your message. I don't enter competitions but I do sometimes exhibit and sell cards of my work. I gave a canvas painting to a charity yesterday to auction off - not sure how it went but it's all I can offer.

I have quite a lot of work on but also try and fit in some art work as well. Your website is fantastic. 

I haven't got a website but I do have facebook and Instagram.


Keep up the good work!

Thanks a lot Ronald for your lovely  comments . The sailing  ship paintingvone one of my very earliest  paintings i'd  only been painting 3 months. 

I started the cartoons when i started to run out of  room because of the amount of canvases   i had stacked up and as people seem to like them so I've  carried on with them and even sold Some 

Best wishes paul
