How did yer place hold up in the rumbler?

What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice

Great work,

Out of disaster, you were then sent around county, where you can show your talent with more people.

Your artwork, makes me think of L. S. Lowry artwork. I've few of his prints hung up in my place.

Well...I spent a few years working for the local town-museum Art Gallery.
Did the lighting, helped the artists with their exhibition layouts and such.
Got pretty good at it too, with time :)

Saw one heck of a lot of stuff from a whole host of countries (and met
a lot of fascinating characters - artists, y'know ;) amateurs as well as
full-fledged, very excentric professionals ha ha...

...and no, I wouldn't mind at all hanging one of your paintings on my
wall :)

Peace to you & yours wave.gif
