    Well done on the site! Hat off to you. I have read your story above about how you got to this point. I totally agree with your description of the ‘mental tool box’ and reading that sentence conjured up a lovely image of one of my early painting tins. Precious memories feed my work. I can’t ever remember not drawing or making. it’s tue, it is all of us! All the best Pete.
