When you said you were going to paint my house I was about to go to the shed and get out the step ladders hehe!!!!! Then you produced this little beauty. Thank you, it's a very pretty painting. You captured the lovely sunny day which had a few fluffy clouds in the sky. June is beautiful, I can almost here the blackbirds sing when I see this :-)

Oh thank you :-) It's been a learning curve here. I'm grateful to this place for all I've learn't. Now I have hedgehogs in the garden too and they aren't scared, they come and eat the food I now put on the lawn since I no longer have a bird table! Every evening they just walk onto the lawn in broad daylight :-) Lovely

Thank you for this beautiful gift, you are so talented Rob.
