I am so sorry that I have inflicted this on you as today. I am not sure how many posts I will be able to make during the next few weeks. I am to be on holiday. So today I went back in my other blog to almost the starting point of a great adventure for me. The adventure that has brought me to this moment in time. So what other of my art could I use but this terrible self portrait.

Some day I will attempt to do this again. Who knows maybe even while on holiday? One of my very early attempts at painting people. I just never did get it right. I did get one thing right though, the thing that people have always said throughout my whole life. I think I got the wicked twinkle in the eye right.

This was done in pastel.

Yes I could have left you with a better artwork but that is what the twinkle is all about.

I will do my best to put on some posts while away but if I do not manage as often as I should forgive me.

There is that wicked glint again. I will be thinking of you would love to think I was in your thoughts just once.

Have a great weekend till I post again.

This blog is linked to my other.  Remembering Important People
