22 Feb, 2012

 

Isnt he just SL, and do you know i have just realised, the stones where the snowdrops are growing are an exact match of the stones we have in the garden wall!!!

22 Feb, 2012

 

Brian's generosity knows no bounds, I can vouch for that and so too his talents.
It is a lovely picture and what a great surprise for you :0))

22 Feb, 2012

 

Thank you Val, you have put it better than I could, extremely generous I agree and very clever.

How lovely Sticki . . . what a thrill for you, and what a talent Brian has. You will treasure that painting, I know!

You don't know how right you are Driad!
Very very lucky, Scottish and sue, it was a complete and very lovely surprise!
I know what you mean lily, thank you, I'm trying to share it a bit by putting it on here!
Exactly pixi!

Thank you everyone but most of all thank you Brian!

22 Feb, 2012

 

That is a work of art sticky just needs a nice frame.

23 Feb, 2012

 

Simply stunning....

23 Feb, 2012

 

been and sorted out the frame today kev, its now in pride of place in my hall.
looks lovely!

im hoping brian is reading this, cos i would love him to know how we all appreciate him and his amazing and lovely pictures.

23 Feb, 2012

 

Beautifully painted especially like the raindrops on the flowers.

26 Feb, 2012

 

it is lovely isnt it linda, the raindrops are beautiful, i admire it every time i look at it.

26 Feb, 2012

 

Lovely painting you lucky Sticki...you'll have to bake him a cake as a thank you..you are both artists in your own way. I can also vouch for Bjs generosity, he sent me some 'pinkish' crocosmia which I had commented on and couldn't find for sale:-)

27 Feb, 2012

 

Now that's a very good idea, Thanks BA, only thing is I can't make a cake that's as good as Brian's painting.

27 Feb, 2012

 

Now you're being modest Sticki, master baker...but it certainly won't last as long:-)))

27 Feb, 2012

 

Well it can always feed the birds!

27 Feb, 2012

 

Sacrilege!:-)
