THIS IS IT Folks!! I'm Back ... ready or not!

After a very long time ... I'm back.

We have now moved into West Wales and are very happy to have found this fantastic and magical place!

I have had a very non-art year, which I'm not going to bore you with. The last stage was setting up a new studio ... and here it is.

The Drawing Office Part For Pen & Ink Mode.
The Writing Area for Author Mode
Another View of Drawing/Writing areas
The Painting and the  Library/Reading Areas
 So ... no more excuses for not working. Get the Coffee & Cookies ready, I'm on my way to yours shortly!!

      I'll soon reduce the studio to chaos!

    1. The scripts I have written are for radio, and not stage, Dave. Nevertheless, I have some poems and short stories they might want to consider, although they have already been published which might preclude them. But thanks for the pointer, I'll call in there in the coming week.

      Everyone is making me so welcome down here, with gifts of home grown fruit to home-made chutney, not to mention yourself Dave; many thanks

  17. Good to see you're back with all your talents settled. Sorry to read of Pat's arthritis. It's a bear. Massage is helpful--and stretches. She needs a home gym John--and a trainer who specializes. You're going to have to move some of your stuff. It's nice you're close to the theater though. Lovely evenings. delightful people.
