Hope that everyone had a good Christmas/Yule

I really have to get a grip on journal writing, I visit DA nearly every day, I should at least write a weekly journal.

I have been working on a screenplay (as well as a novel and a couple of other ideas in development) which Is still unfinished needs formatting and a bit of polishing, I should have finished it and sent it to the B.B.C Writers room in mid December, they have an open submission gateway for scripts a couple of times a year as part of a search for new writers. I will now have to wait until the next opportunity possibly May/June 2014 I should have it finished by then and working on something else.

Still working on improving my watercolour painting, I did give up for a while as it wasn't working out for me, I seem to be getting the hang of it this time, don't have anything finished to post just yet as well as doing a couple of acrylic paintings as part of my bike project.

I have been posting some old work in my scraps that I did in the mid 80's and some from about 15 years ago.

Posting some photos for the first time, some were taken in the garden while getting used to the camera, during the Summer I went out taking photos for images that I intend to use as backgrounds for my paintings and I am using some at the moment some that I took of the yellow Rapeseed fields a mile or so from my home for a series of “Girl in a field” watercolours that I am working on. The images of Poppies are taken from these.

I have also been photographing bikes at various bike shows as stock for my bike project paintings, mostly British bikes like Triumphs, B.S.A's, Vincents, also Harleys and Indians including The Wall of Death, which should be a challenge

Happy New Year
