Firstly let me say this is by far, in my opinion, the best art site of its kind on the web and I wish I had found it much earlier than I did. Whether you are a beginner, or a more experienced painter the excellent support, and advice that comes from fellow members is wonderful .
I have no formal art training , but did get Art A level at school and have painted all my life.
After thirty years working in a power station I took early retirement in 2001, and have had the opportunity to indulge in the pleasure of doing what I fancy, and painting is right up there.
We live in the lovely country town of Stony Stratford .I have been married to Pauline for 48 years, have 3 Children 4 Grandsons and 2 Granddaughters .ages range from 3 to 25 years.
With us both now retired I guess we'll have the opportunity to travel more so if i go missing a while hopefully it'll be for following the sun.
Im so pleased to have met so many wonderful people from all over the world here, many of whom I can genuinely call true friends. I thank you for sparing the time to look at my work and for your comments, and If you spare the time to comment on my work I will make the effort to reply to you, so my apologies now if I miss out, it really is not intentional.

How do you compose your compositions? Are the just in front of you, combined images or from your imagination?
