Thank you both for your comments, quite story!, I started out to do one of her and all her 'captures' gathered together, but got side tracked with this one.

Is this another one for the book Jim? A very difficult subject to paint but you've managed it. Let your public know when the publication is going to be made.
best wishes
Edgar.

Hi Edgar, no, the book has gone to the printer, and should be launched next month. I have been invited over to Sandefjord, but it is looking increasingly unlikely that I will manage to attend.
Regards Jim
