A note to all my friends. I'm heading to the US, first week in February to work up and around Utah, Idaho and Wyoming for 3 mths so I'll most likely be away from here unless I can get online. It's pretty exciting and I hope to gather loads of new material and inspiration for future artwork. Cheers to all for your encouraging comments on my paintings, past, present and future. See yall soon. Dianne
