Harvest Mice on Brambles – ink and watercolour.
Cat – pastel on velour

    1. Thank you, Sarah. They all have something in them I love, and they all have flaws, but that’s the nature of art. You’re never quite content with what you produce. There’s always that feeling you could have done it better. Old Porthgain and Reflections have sold, but Wayward is staying with me. She sits on an easel in my art room and reminds me daily to be brave.
