Bristles: The potential in an artistís brush.
Hi everybody. Itís been a while but Iím back again after a longer than planned break during which Iíve been coming to terms with the world of hard copy and finding it throws up a surprising range of differences in both technique and attitude when compared to the more familiar experience of posting online.

Iíve picked this image to kick off with as it was the first sale in a Craft Fayre I recently took part in, going to a couple who strolled in during the setting up period and provided an encouraging start to the week.

View Large for EXTRA tickle.

So glad to see you back Eric..There are not many true originals on this site, but you are one of them

I'm not surprised you got a sale with this one, it's bold, colourful, and an image that belongs on someones wall

I remember a guy called Eric used to frequent EPZ ages ago .... he did pretty kooky stuff like this too.

I just wonder if you're related in some way?
