So exploring the modernists and surreal artists has been a blast - Mondrian, Miro, Matisse ...... still on the M's

A neighbour ran to the well and learning what had happened said "Old fellow, why in striving to pry into what is in heaven, do you not manage to see what is on earth?"

New directions
I've been working on etched plates and am now starting to use mixed media to come up with something quite different. New lands for me.
