    Superb work, filled with colour and life from that astounding civilization so long ago.
    The sun has a lion’s face – was that intentional, or a happy accident?
    Happy and vibrant, as ever!
    Has to go in my faves, Shelley.

    Ah! I wish I could say it was a stroke of genius, alas the suns face was a happy accident. Stood back from the canvas and there it was. Thank you, love the feed back. We have had a 10 day heat wave which has stopped today, so hopefully I will be able to get the paints out of moth balls. Thanks again
