Heading north

I missed taking a photo of the first flocks of cranes heading north. I spotted these on Monday - I guess they will be going to Eastern Europe - I look forward to seeing their straggly nests at the weekend when T1 goes to her first overseas gym competition in Hungary. It will be exciting to see Budapest too - after 12 years and to visit Cafe Gerbeaudt for gesztenyepüré amongst other things. Heading north

Homage to varicose veins

I have been making leotards for rhythmic gymnastics of late. This one is for Diana, and the first one I've painted. Back view... Not yet finished ... I recently discovered that an ex found the couple of very small varicose on the back of my knee nauseatingly disgusting. I dedicate this beautiful work to SE. May he get over it!
