Back in dear old Blighty

The day after we returned it snowed! What a welcome.

A couple of new posts have gone live. One of my favourite cars, the Shelby Cobra 427, was created with Derwent Grafix pens using only dots, a technique known as pointillism. That took longer than usual but I’m pleased with the result.

Today I posted the Harbour Master’s office. It’s an old building that lends itself to a bit of artistic licence. I can never tell tell what the finished product will look like. Where to next?

Winter sun

New images will appear soon, but for now I am in the Mediterranean enjoying warm days under blue skies.

Each year, around this time, we come to Cyprus in the hope that we can have a week away from the cold and damp of England’s winter. This year has been particularly dreary with a period of Siberian winds and their sub-zero temperatures. It brought heavy snow and a chill not experienced for many years.

But for now there is unbroken blue sky, the thermometer says it is 23C, and all is peace and tranquility. Next week we fly home again, looking forward to the spring arriving in England’s green and pleasant land.
