Firstly, to my fellow bloggers, an apology. I haven't had a great amount of free time of late and that hasn't only impacted on my time for painting and drawing, but has seriously affected my ability to get round all the blogs I like to follow. I have selfishly found a few moments here and there to post an old picture or two to my blog, just to try and keep things 'ticking over', but not the time for reading other blogs as much as I would like.
Thankfully that is changing now. I managed to get away for a nice break last week and my ever-tollerant wife (bless her heart) made sure I had plenty of time for my art. Though I could have painted all week long, I tried not to take too much advantage of her thoughfulness, but I did manage a few hours every day, hence the recent postings of the Coal Mine and Sherwood Forest.
My other big passion is photography and I took plenty of photo's on holiday, especially when we visited the zoo, so don't be surprised to see a few animal photo's posted in the near future.
