Hello Dorothy,

Thank you so much for your comments, my output of art is always very low in summer due to the fact I love gardening as much as art. With limited sunshine in UK so I try to spend much time as possible out there.

Thank you very much Dorothy. I'm usually ok with the faces (mostly),  and I'm trying to get better at the other bits such as clothing and the like so your comment is much appreciated.

It's always worth a try especially with you husband being invalided  out because a night jump ,  that would be right up the top of my  request  page about the night jump. injuries.

My nephew  did your of Afghanistan  his injuries are ptsd and  theres hardly a month were  he isnt being  flown on some trip  by either by the legion or help for heros

Most bigger scooters go 8mph and 4 mph and you can only go 4 mph on a footpath. The is a man who has a. Illegal  16mph scooter in town and he goes flat out on the pavement

Thanks Dorothy. My throry is that I think it must have been the fashion to paint people in the same style at that time.  If you go back a bit further to Carravaggios time the people looked relatively normal. Only a theory though.

Hello Dorothy,

Thank you for your comments on Christ on the Cross, we will learn from each other. Once stop learning we stop creating and that is the heartbeat of art, I am willing to try anything new to achieve my goals.

Hello Dorothy once again, glad that you like it. It was hard work trying to create that leather jacket look, it  took time but in end if it achieves the end result you know you have got there. Thank you for your kind comments.

Hello Dorothy,

So pleased that you like “ Man without a gun “ Clint Eastwood.  My understanding is it affects men more than women my spectrum falls under the reddish grey colours,  I have learnt to live with it and as far as painting goes I read a lot and look at videos  for colour tones and skintones and just add the colours what is required and if it looks good to me then I carry on and hope it works. I Went through a period where I was fascinated by detail and using the routine pen gave me that ability. If you have time please have a look at Christ on the Cross which took quite awhile to create.

I take something called Rivotril when I go to bed which helps a lot as it seems to settle the sciatic nerve. I am obliged to visit a neurologist yearly for the prescription. Keep smiling! Can you enjoy a glass of wine? Mxx

I was surprised  at the number you said there are i'd  have thought that the lower than average  tempretures  would have effected the more but then in the summer you have longer daylight hours than we have in the south

It's hard to know who'd  be most surprised  the adder or the person.

there he was stretched  out catching a few ray  and then his whole day goes downhill its no wonder. He got angry.

I only know of one person to have got bitten back in the 1970s ,  He  was fishing on the riverbank and just sorted himself out a playful of food, he was reaching out for something on the plate and felt something that shouldn't  have been there  and it bit him on the hand.

His hand and arm swoll up  but he was allowed home from hospital the next day

Thankyou Dorothy for your kind words. I guess it is so far removed from my normal stuff it just doesn't feel right. As you say though I think we all throw up these anomoliesx from time to time.

Bon courage - as the French say! Just take each day as it comes. Hope you are able to sleep. I understand perfectly as I have a fused spine and a hip replacement, so an uncomfortable body is a daily encumbrance . Mxx

Oh Dorothy - I do hope the health issues improve very soon - this ageing process id a nightmare, on the other hand we are lucky to have grown old! All the best. Both my teacher and framer were quite touched by their silly gifts! Mxx
