Thank you Mark, Russ and Chris. Looking forward to getting to know your work as well.
I had a peaceful weekend at home, and were able to do some painting. I've always been a birdwatcher more than an artist, which I think is reflected in many of my paintings - I usually pay much more attention to the bird than the surroundings. These days I'm trying to put the bird in an environment more and more, and I find painting flowers, leaves, stones and water really difficult. But it's still fun, and as we all know, practice is the only way forward.
