Shiny Top Notch (over under below above)

The Pointy People Mural (forward warrior 2016)

Don’t climb a ladder if you have had a whisky. Don’t drink Columbian coffee in the evening if you want to sleep. A friend recently told me sometimes the art looks better 2/3 finished. I am trying to improve by … Continue reading
