Frank says "Here is today’s production
Lovely day, if a bit chilly."

Thanks to Frank, Adam and Iola for photographs of your works today.



Craigdarroch Castle asked us for permission to include some of our paintings on their website:
Toby says, "Below is a link to the post. It can also be found by googling Craigdarroch Castle Facebook
and it will pop on up. Currently the post has been seen by 2000 people with over 225 people
clicking through the photos to see them up close. Thanks for sharing with us :)
We might even reach out about turning some paintings into greeting cards for sale in our gift shop!"
