The worst of times ... the best of times

PLEASE NOTE THIS POST CONTAINS NUDITY - IF YOU ARE OFFENDED PLEASE DO NOT CONTINUE TO READ

From a standing start, from our little genius' birth which coincided rather nicely with the Painter's 40th birthday, the Painter has been plying his trade as a professional artist. He has had to endure terrible pangs of uncertainty, scepticism from some quarters and, as some of you know, two major strokes and the consequent rehabilitation.

In the middle of all this we have been evicted and rehoused in a notably unsalubrious hovel, fondly known as Urine Towers.

The last year have seen the Painter go from struggling to sell one or two paintings to selling 10 of his lovely paintings. At the moment we are planning for the forthcoming year, setting targets and generally dreaming about the way things might be in the year to come. For those of you who might have missed the Painter's work I showcase all his sales below and sincerely thank all of his clients: your belief and patronage have made things that seemed like a pipedream begin to become a reality.

Good for you, and for him! Love the nude work - he has a very pleasing style, for me, and - are they oils? I think so - I like the use of colour and tone.

Oooh. Get me! Florence Llewellyn-Bowen, here I come...! But seriously, well done to the pair of you. If you're ever up in Exeter, do come and have tea. :)

Thank-you Kitchen Witch. Most are in oils, the single fruit "fruit pastels" are oil pastels and the still life with citrus is watercolour.

Love to drop in for tea if we are ever up that way. :)

The man has talent. As incidentally do you!

The Satsuma adorning my wall is anticipating the union with several of its siblings. Shan't be long. Seeing them all together makes me smile. Good luck She Weevil, good luck Painter.
