Ugh. What a pain. At least you've officially put this down on "film" for posterity sake (or whatever) -- in case you do end up having to throw it out. Funny how our children rarely remember the things we remember. :o)

Good Morning. I hadn't got around to posting last Friday due to a trip to the vet,....so this is what you missed. It is another pre-Christmas commission, below are the links to the two blogs. The faces are recognisable enough for Google to want me to tag them lol, that's a relief ;-)

A bit (okay it's a bit more than a bit) of colour can't do any harm, can it, at this time of year, - even if it is pink? Have a good weekend, everyone!

Thank you, +Edward Bishop. It is going to get cold an snowy again in the next few days, so I thought it would be nice to keep this reminder of imminent (I hope) spring in mind ;-)

A pre-Christmas commission, which I had forgotten about in amongst all the paper work that I am doing currently....
Have a good weekend, folks.

Story
Tagline
I smile, I dig, I pick, I click, I draw, I paint, I make, I look, I see, I watch - a while - and smile.
Introduction
Mostly, I draw people and animals from photographs, but I like making things in general. And I love my garden and watching everything grow.

Hm, I got my first DSLR not long ago. Just a basic entry level one. But it's getting put to plenty use and some of the results will turn up here for folk to review and tell me where I'm going wrong. There's lots to learn!

Here are some of my attempts:
