You may not have painted in ages, but you have not lost your outstanding touch.  This is a very good example of your remarkable talent. Thanks for continuing to share with us.

My thanks to all..........

Really appreciate the kind words as they take so long to do.
My return to painting comes on the back of some sadness as I recently lost my Political position having dedicated 4 years to my constituents 24/7, 365 days a year. Even whilst on holiday I was forever dealing with issues by phone for people.
It seems it was a protest vote against government (I think it may be stronger than that) which has damaged the network of hard working local Councillors  many of whom like me, put people before Politics. Very sad to have lost as I enjoyed helping people and representing my town to ensure we got the best of what was available.

However time for family now, painting and relaxation as I head towards my 65th birthday.

Best wishes to all

Ray
