 :thankyou:   :thankyou: :thankyou:  so very much Danielle, Mea and Fi for your wonderful comments.


 Danielle, I wish I was an energy bunny, I could do with some of his batteries to get me moving!


 Mea, thanks for the compliment about my new avatar.  A change is as good as a holiday.


 Fi, I had to laugh about the gorilla's expression reminding you of your late husband when he was thinking. I have  seen a lot of people frown when thinking deeply - the anthropoids are so human-like and are rather fascinating.  Thanks too for your encouragement. I enjoy pastels and find them very forgiving.

Hi Pat;
Sorry I missed this painting.....it's WONDERFUL!!!  You really captured the feel of the picture, and the gentleness in his eyes of this magnificent animal.  Great job, Lady.
