FROM THE SCRAPBOOK.....

From my scrapbook..... before computers and such, this is what I turned to when my concentration started to ebb. I've collected a scrapbook of paintings taken from magazines e.t.c. for along as I can remember. Not quite the same as going to a Gallery and seeing the real thing but a good way to discover how artists painted a subject, and not as much eye strain as a computer screen. Progress, I am pleased to say is also coming along on the paintings.
I can't post without mentioning what has been happening in our world. My heart is truly heavy for all the lost souls and the unbearable suffering in Japan, I wonder when it will all end :)
