I got this tweet in my Twitter timeline today. Feels great to have given some real pleasure to someone’s life and enhanced their home. This is one of the pieces Gabriel and Alan bought:

Yesterday on my #Letter365 blog I said

If you want pictures of fluffy things, portraits, realism, impressionism, boats on water and that kind of thing I’m generally not your man.

So the devil in me thought I should make my #arteachday post on Twitter should be a line and wash sketchbook entry of the coast across Lyme Bay west of West Bay.

Today’s #arteachday post on Twitter today was this little ink drawing on watercolour paper. I have been mounting some stuff today that isn’t going to get framed right now and this might be one worth doing for Dorset Art Weeks.

No. Really. It is there! You have to look very carefully and maybe click on it to enlarge, but it is there. You can perhaps see why I have been struggling to get good photographs of my work! This was today’s #arteachday posting on Twitter and I immediately had a reply from someone that they couldn’t see anything! Admittedly it is a bit minimalist but I can see it standard size on my PC. It is another of my  repetitive “field” drawings. For those of you who still can’t see it here is a detail:
