I have been a bit busy lately. I have become a Great Grandmother :). Well as I said to them - I've always been great :). I feel really happy to have achieved this with the knowledge that there could be a few more yet. I always knew that getting married and having babies at a young age (as my eldest daughter also did) would have it's advantages. Still reasonably fit and able to baby sit if the occasion arises :) - being Great is even better that just the Grand in that respect however :D. I'd love to be able to paint a portrait of him but, by the time it was finished he'd probably be 21! and I could never do him justice :)

Anyway, here's my painting of the delicate begonia flowers. I used the airbrush, oils, chalk and pencil.

Oh these are quite nice! Probably would do me good to do a floral for my wife in the oils she let me get, gonna go get some reference in the next day or two and do just that! Thanks for the inspiration!
