Some days you eat the bear ...

... and some days the bear eats you.

Arrived at the Art Club yesterday to be greeted by a doleful Prospective Buyer. The Prospective Buyer's Wife had failed to come up with the necessary enthusiasm for buying my Wobbly Bridge picture. I put it in a bag and brought it home.

After a few hours of energetic painting, I realised that all was not well with my Old Gadgie and Buildings picture. In fact, I had to acknowledge that it was never going to work. I painted over it with the remaining paint from the palette.

Couldn't have put it better myself.

Sorry about your bad day but I really like the picture. By the by, I'm doing therapeutic art classes at the moment and I mentioned your name to my teacher. "Ah yes, he does a lot of cityscapes, doesn't he? I like them," was the reply. So there you are, my art teacher Kevin likes your stuff. I just thought I'd share this small piece of kudos since you're having a bad day. Sorry it won't pay the rent.

Their loss.

It's a good piece.

Simon, Ian, thanks. Special thanks to you Simon. It is something of a boost to the ego to know that my fame has spread as far afield as ... you are where you were, aren't you?
