Hi Joakim! I'm so embarrassed! I cannot lie! I still have yet to pick up the brushes. The problem for me now is that I have lost the area of the house that I used to use to paint - it is now a double bedroom, so it is a problem to find a nice flat area in which to work. Some people work on an easel but I prefer a flat horizontal surface. I tell you what, send me some images again of the boat and the lighthouse to inspire me again! With apologies! Sorry I didn't reply earlier - my mum has been staying for three weeks. Free at last!
