    That’s quite an anchievement isn’t it. There is an organisation in Sweden for artists who paint with their mouths and with their feet, I’ve seen some of their work, quite astonishing.

    The painint labeled Always a Friend by this magnificent artist is mind-boggling in its realism.
    It is one of the finest paintings I have been privileged to see. I treasure this.

    Excuse the typo.. The painting is what I meant to say.

  4. Lisa, I’ve just looked at that on Google. (Funnily enough it was a postcard from a postcrosser’s site that I was directed to). It is fantastic. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.
