Here's a little painting I did for my darling Jane for Christmas. It's her eldest daughter Milena with her son Remi having fun on the beach in Spain. I had to do this one surreptitiously so Jane knew nothing about it, having been asked if I would do it many months ago. Tears flowed on Christmas day as she opened it - no, not because she thought it was awful!
And here's one of her looking very coy climbing over a stile after walking off some festive nosh.
and here's one of yours truly using an unusual cushion after another festive feast...
Yesterday was my birthday, a big one between 50 and 70 (obviously there's some terrible error on my birth certificate), and we had a lovely meal at a pub, paid for by my dear brother (many years older...) and sister-in-law...nom nom!
