  1. Hi Sydney thanks for visiting my blog and liking so many things, it allowed me to find your blog and great work.


    1. And thanks for visiting mine! Thanks for taking the time to look and to comment – much appreciated!I really like your work as well – the colour is stunning; I can almost taste it. Great work! Best, Sydney


    1. Thank you so much! You are too kind. It keeps me out of trouble, most of the time :) …
      I find my ‘toolbox’ increasing over the years, and I think that’s a good thing; still exploring the same basic ideas – because they still fascinate me – but always looking for new ways to do that. It’s about developing a vocabulary, really; I’m sure you find the same sort of thing going on in your work.
