Hi Again Katyb. Thanks for your note. I think I left a pm...but am in such a busy world perhaps I didn't. Am really interested to know more about the art scene in London. I am so out of touch now but plan to be there end of next year. We get many English visitors here and all tell me that the art scene there is being supported by Russians and Chinese.... Hope you are enjoying the luv of those puppies....do you enjoy commissions? wishing you lots of joy for the Christmas season.....happy days from OZ... b.xxxx
