I have a friend,
one of those lovely friends
with whom you can talk about everything and nothing
One of those friends
that you don't need to see all the time
for them to still be a friend.
We are not old friends,
fairly new in fact,
and are still getting to know things about each other.
Recently she and her husband called in
and he mentioned that Mandy painted!
We hadn't talked about this and I was fascinated
so this weekend I was at her home and asked to see her paintings.
"I paint faces" she said
I don't quite know what I expected
but this is what she does
and I am in absolute awe of her amazing talent!
I want this one!
(Mandy the line has gone!!!)
And this one!
reminds me of Mandy!
I am sorry my photography does not do these justice!
At the end I found a few more and Mandy said
"I tried water colours here"
Top is the Chairman of our regional Arts Board
my Mother was a painter and I dally in the field
without a huge degree of success!
so it is rather exciting to find such a talent
and to be able to share this find.
I hope you agree with me
Mandy you are a star.
