Highway Man

Today I've had a productive day and been busy working up an image with the pencil and crayons. I only hope it gets resolved by myself. I did fluff up and had to start again this morning. I've really enjoyed being busy today listening to pop tunes and sipping tea..

I haven't done a deal for a number of days; I did manage not to dribble mucus on some prints of mine which was a skill I was impressed with. We Continue...
