    Hi John,

    Good to see this little fellow finished off, charming portrayal and I particularly like the colouring plus the ground work both offer a realistic view of the subject.

    Would be keen to catch up with you off line with regards the Maimeri acrylics and your source for these. When you have a chance of course.

    Take care,

    Mike
