It's been some time since I last posted here. My husband and I went on a trip to London, which was so absorbing that my crayons and paper never got to be used, inspite of my good intensions. But - I have taken loads of photographs and am looking forward to working from them. London was great and very inspiring, as you can imagine! I didn't feel at all like leaving when we had to...
The shot for this first "London" painting was taken after we had just arrived - heading for Islington and waiting for the "Northern Line" late in the evening.

Hi Ruth,
Thanks to you! I scrolled through your blog, too and very much liked your paintings, especially the large one of "Mystery". The bright red on your latest painting works very well!

I love this Liza,

I'm a bit behind I'm sorry. You know I'm always thinking of you, and that I always think your work is magnificent.
