    Oh wow! Pinky is dead on it has the qualities of an etching and the colours are incredibly evocative. Can’t wait to see the rest X

  • thanks Paul… sigh… I am missing you terribly at the moment – it is sooooo sooooo hard to be estranged from you by 9 hours driving stretch of land between us….. eeeeeeeeek! I wish i had my own private jet to come fly and see u x and culture – how i could do with a good gig!
