As the 2006 G8 summit is underway in Russia and we are a year on from Live8 it seems appropriate to share these paintings with others who care about keeping up the pressure for change, for justice. So here are some scanned samples of my watercolours.

I want to thank Midge and his wonderful music for being such an inspiration, for touching my soul in infinite ways, for being my 'creative portal' this past year. Shame I can't do his good looks justice but then the paintings are about raising awareness, about the Power of the Voice, about Hope not portraits.

'KEEPING UP THE PRESSURE'





'AFRICAN CHALLENGE'

Thanks ! And i feel we should start in our own back yards and pollute less, and use more sustainable resources. I will happily lead a simple life (probably already do); don't see why we should all have to live in a rat race just to make the rich even richer.

Thanks folk for your kind comments. I'll post some more pics in the future - though I'll need Cerise's help again if she's willing. And IF I ever one day get the Exhibition in Edinburgh that is on my dream/wish list hopefully there might be one or two members from Scotland who'd pay it a visit.
