    Brilliant piece Lynda, love those colours in the foreground

  • hanks Josh – Good to hear from you and I hope you are having a great start to the year. In answer to an earlier question – yes, I have seen a few of Henry Moore’s scuptures, and that recent work you posted is extremely ‘Mooreish’!

    I guess you work with light as much as pastels Lynda.

  • Thanks for the comment Brian. Yes, I look at light and shade in absolutely everything. If I was talking to you face to face I would be observing the light and shade on your features!
