    Back to school in 2017

    Every year I promise myself that the year ahead will be different!  Not that the year that has passed has been awful in anyway, I just like things to evolve and to learn new things.  So with that in mind, 2017 will see me head to Norfolk Painting School for a professional oils diploma course.
