HAPPY XMAS & PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR

May I wish all my followers and everyone else who visit this blog a Happy Xmas  and Prosperous New Year. Unfortunately we face very uncertain times both in the UK and World Wide.

In the UK the uncertainty of Brexit and what it will bring - those in favour seem to think we'll be sailing into a land of milk and honey  with little evidence to back this up unfortunately - while remainers predict disaster. I have to say I'm a remainer despite my reservations about certain aspects of the EU.

Worldwide there are all sorts of problems not least the concerns over the political situation in the United States. There are far too many others like climate change to name them all. I'm basically an optimist in that I believe all problems are solvable providing the will to do so is there. Of all the species on Earth the human race, despite its destructive tendencies, is truly remarkable in what has been achieved.

On the painting front the Watercolour scene has never been better with literally hundreds of wonderful artists all over the World producing fantastic work. I have shown more than 200 of these paintings on the blog this year and continue to find new ones all the time..

So have a great time over Xmas and let us hope 2019 will be a more positive year.

Here in the USA it's almost a sport to watch how far that Man-baby we have in the oval office will go and how far he will fall.

Anyhow, to quote a great song:

Until then, we'll have to muddle
through somehow,
so have yourself a merry little
Christmas now

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year Peter!!

Merry Christmas Peter! Having finally worked out how to comment on blogger.com I figured it was high time I thanked you for this blog. We share many of the same favourite artists, and your blog comparisons have been a bit of a ‘go to’ resource since I discovered you a couple of years ago.
