Excuse the pun on an old Led Zep track. Just a quick one.

This is how I’ve chosen to enjoy the stuff I’m doing currently. With the added bonus of reminding me every time I go up or downstairs to ‘Get my arse in gear and make boxes for some of them to go on’

How perfect!!! It took me a long time to frame one of my paintings and hang it in my living room. I choose my favorite, a cheetah, and it watches over me and serves as a constant reminder that “I can”. They are incredible, Martyn!

Martyn, your artwork belongs on a wall.
Do you date your work and sign it?
Since 1958?
No wonder your work is so incredible.

Thanks for sharing.

Thats when I was born. I’ve figured in my time as a screaming brat in the ‘messing with other people’s heads’ thing.

‘58? Huh, I thought you were much older :-)
You seem wiser than that.

Looks like a nice display. I like it. Did you have to drill holes in the backs of those?

Why not just leave them on the wall where they can be seen Martyn? They look great there.

Steve, a small hole but as they are backed with Birch ply its easy to patch, later.

Cocktail party: “Oh, those? My husband pieced those together.” ...tossed off ever so casually. ;-) Maybe you could sell box tops just that way as wall decor, Martyn. Nice!

So Matryn, won’t there be a gap on the wall when I take one of them back to the states with me on my visit to England and Scotland in July/August? I guess you can just rearrange whatever I leave you!

Wow – you’ve been busy since I last looked! This is very cool, and I enjoyed the pun.

Have your say...
