Happy new Year

Hello everyone
I have not been around much lately, having undergone heart valve replacement surgery on NY Eve. I seem to be coming along slowly and expect to make a complete recovery over the next 10 weeks or so.

Can't wait to get the brushes out again, hopefully, in a few weeks time. In the meantime your paintings are all giving me much inspiration

Cheers
