  1. I'm thinking of those two sets of eyes studying different surfaces.

    That newspaper sky is beautiful.

    1. Newspaper sky, sounds a bit Sgt Pepper-ish.

  3. Lovely.

    How times change. In ancient Rome they would have made Dad a priest for that.

    1. Thanks Tom. Ironically, I am currently reading Romans In Britain by the late, very great Rodney Legg. And Dad's Dad was, wait for it, a priest.

  5. a whole scene drawn so quickly. (this is exciting, really.) you relied on us all knowing, being able to extrapolate. i am so relieved that it seems we know this time and place and way of being.
