Spent the year taking care of my husband until he died from cancer late October.  With the support of my marvelous family and friends, I will now get back into blogging and posting images on my flickr account.

This is one of the 'LITTLE GEMS' series I created throughout the summer, as it was easier to paint small (5 or 7 inches only) and still be available for Clive. Eight of these works have just been hung in the Picturecraft Gallery in Holt, Norfolk for the Christmas show.

After some six weeks since I picked up a brush, I hope to get back to creating having attended a wonderful two days at Sue Williams cottage earlier this week working in the Fauvre style - just what I needed 'bright, bright, psychedelic unnatural colours, ie green skies and torquoise buildings!! '

Joan - my heart goes out to you on the loss of your dear husband. I had no idea you were going through all this, but had missed your postings. My dear husband is going through cancer treatment - it is not easy to have our loved ones ill.
Your "little gem" is so beautiful - I love the textural effects.

iPhone is the most expensive brand of phone out there and thieves know that. That's why a lot of iPhones are being robbed. It would be a wise choice from the time you bought one to get an iPhone insurance to secure future financial damage.
