This is dedicated to my lovely wife,….She`s been my soul mate for a very long time,…

I love to paint,….sadly,….I have not painted on canvas,or paper since I was in my early teens,….
I would still love to give it a go,…but time and a place to set up,….always holds me back,…
Am slowly learning to paint on my computer,……and the clean up is a lot easier,…LOL.
Hope you enjoy my FUN !
