Very impressive Howard - I really like it  :-))


I don't suppose Swmbo would be happy if I did something like that in our bedroom  {:-{


Still, your grandson must be thrilled with it and you get loads of brownie points for your efforts.


Regards,
Ray.

That is great, when I was around 12 I did a side view of an aeroplane on my bedroom wall. With permission. Must have been 6ft long or so.

I would go for brave or lucky or optimistic.  Cracking job, though.
Anybody remember the Steptoe and Son Episode where the elder Steptoe knobbled the water bed?

Are you an artist by training? This is superb work, what with the different layers and details.

Hello Ballastanksian,
 No I havn't had any training just always liked and was pretty good at art at school, When my grandson was a baby I painted Peter Rabbit on his nursery wall I will try find a photo of that and post.
                       Regards Howard.
