Thanks for your comments and emails folks. I am back doing a little burst of blogging, but only briefly and not doing proper replies, sorry. The computer is still on it's last legs but I have cramp and can't go anywhere so I'm prepared to wait while it slowly does it's thing. I'm even doing some random linking while I wait, which is always fun and leads to all sorts of things...
Xavier Deshoulières is a French painter who's work I have fallen in love with and would happily purchase if I had any money.
He uses an amazing technique of painting from behind the canvas and using his hands to push the paint through to the other side. Find him at Virgil Gallery
