I had the flu last week

I was not 100% last week so I didn't go anywhere or do very much, the twins didn't do much they were showing me how to relax, the beer fairy had been away visiting his family up the country the week before and came home with the flu so I was infected too, so it was a slow week after all the painting and cleaning I did last week, I was a bit worn out. 

Also I dropped my camera and it was not working so I was was playing with it just taking photos of my paintings.

So here is some that I don't think I have shown you before. Marney and Sam wedding.

This one I have shown you before.

and maybe Susie.

And this is my daughter.

This was what she really looked like, I think she was 6 in this photo she was a couple of years older in the painting.


This a very early one and so is the next one.





The twins are thinking about getting up now.

  1. Oh my. Where to start.
    1. I am so sorry that you have been poorly and hope you are feeling much, much better.
    2. The twins are gorgeous - and I would love to be able to relax as well as a cat. Any cat.
    3. Your artwork is simply stunning. Coming late to the party I hadn't seen it before and I am both filled with awe and love it.

    1. I have passed on that message do you think it will help, I will bring my camera tomorrow when we got to the art show, it's still not happy about something, and prone to be a bit strange.

  4. Sorry to hear you've had the flu but glad you're on the mend. Those are some great paintings - you have a knack for both portrait work and landscapes. I think the last one of the sailing ship is my favourite - I love the colours and the style of this piece.

    1. The sailing ship was one of the first paintings I ever did, I always liked it but it was painted on wood and has slight water damage but not too bad as it's nearly 40 years old.
