Flo doing her homework at the coffee table

A rather simian Flo – I must have confused her with the monkeys on ‘Planet Earth’. Anyway a good portrait of the general mess of our living room. That laundry still needs folding.

You are a very honest artist. Whenever I was photographed in the garden, there'd be a line of washing there somewhere. (No garden now, so no washing line!)

Just found your pictures. Love them. You are revealing your family in a very touching way, I feel in this brief encounter as if I have met you & your home and who you all are.

shirl in our old house in the rainy winter and with so much washing there wasn't a radiator that wasn't draped with washing. I know it's not great for the planet but I'm so grateful for my tumble drier.

Walter welcome and thank you. I started this because after years of not doing any drawing, I thought it would be such a shame if I didn't make a record of the all too brief time that the children are children.

Lovely way of staying with one colour and very nice drawing. Mess - you ain't seen a mess yet!
I nearly put my brush into the coffee cup and there's Fiji Times, the Age, and bills all on the table.

Who cares about the mess. Your drawing with the color wash is great.

I love the beautiful washes and line work. Such a tender view of Flo (doesn't look simian to me).
