Wishing you all a Happy Christmas

My last post for 2013 (and overdue at that) just had to be about Xmas images from my life.  Hoping that you all have a joyous festive season too.

  10. saw your work on artist table and your comments...Very, very nice to se I also have moved from the figure(realistic) to abstract...much more freedom to explore the limits of the visual space and colour. Please continue to share your work. Would love to see more of it and will if you don't mind, drop in to this site to view your work.
