    Baba, I’m with Anne on the delightful thing. And I’m gonna add stunning and Purple Owsley summer mind blow.
    But I actually think you’re marketing your stuff in the wrong place. People in the south west USA are warm the whole year round and probably take this stuff for granted even if it does look amazing on their walls.
    But do you realize what would happen if your stuff was available in Siberia? They wouldn’t even need log fires and double glazing. And no electricity needed neither. You just hang this puppy on the wall and off go the fur coats and muffs!!

    I love that you include fauna in your flower pieces. It’s as if you see all things organic as having the same soul… and the same passion for the dynamic of life. In fact in most of what you paint, the dynamic is massive. No compression… you do the full spectrum at 200 mph. It’s exhilarating and the vibrations it creates is capable of changing weather patters.
    So yeah, go for the Siberian market Barbara. Anadyr could very well become the new St. Tropez.

    Btw, looked hard… couldn’t spot the lark…

  • But darling Billy my work is available in Siberia. I mean, it’s the ether age. What lark.
    I love the 200 mph full spectrum bless you. I don’t, you know, like holding back. Most of all I’m delighted you find it exhilarating and that the wooshing hairblow comes across the pond etc.
    I wanted all the dazzle and glow in this that I normally see despite bad eyesight, or maybe because of, lots of shimmer out there is there not or is there not. Well it’s what I see.
    I got a cheapo boatload of oil pigments a couple of weeks ago and it enables the heavy impasto once more which is great pleasure to me. In fact I seem to be having way too much fun. And hoping same for you always at every turn, gliding as you are amongst the glitteratti of rock and roll. Oh what lives we all lead.

    …the one the frog’s on… I’m lookin’ for 2 birds and only found one…

  • I’m the other bird.
    The lark the frog’s on is his own business.
