Happy New Year Stef! Hope the holiday in Sweden was great!

Your watercolours are so free and beautiful! I really love the warmth in the colours of the one on the right! Your colour blocking in the above two sketches are really fantastic too!

Good to see you back again!

All the best in the new year!

You can see it's Tina immediately- you are welcome to stay at my little house on the hill overlooking the lake anytime!

I think your watercolours are becoming much looser and expressive- terrific work mon ami

Hey du for now.

Oh my gosh! 2006 arrived and you notch it up. So nice to see you at my party and so sorry I did not talk to you more due to being rat-arsed. You're one of my favorite, outstanding, humble artists!
