Games ll - 6 Exhibition day 6

Work continued today on the tree..I've got to admit it's beginning to get a little tiresome, but is an ideal subject to work on that enables me to break off at any moment to talk to visitors. I'm a little concerned that the balance of the tree is affected by the length of branches at the bottom left hand side...might need to prune it back slightly! I still intend to have the lightning striking the church..but also will have a steam train traveling across the horizon to the right of the tree..I'm considering having the smoke from the engine trail up into the sky and become the thunderclouds!.. As promised, here is a close up of the work giving you an idea of the size. It's based on an A3 size paper and will probably take around 100 hours in my estimate.

Here's my table in the gallery where I sit and work all day..through the window you can see the court yard of the Mill. you'll be pleased to hear that the extreme weather forecast did not arrive for us..though other parts of the country are still under water. We now have the added inconvenience of the Home Office raising the security level warning for the country to 'Critical' which means an attack is immanent..this follows the two car bombs found in London yesterday and the explosion at Glasgow airport this afternoon..these are troubled times..and fanatical idiots seek to wreck the security of our world...

I was listening to the news and I heard something about warning levels and first I thought it was about the weather, but it was about the attacks. What a mess...
I find it amazing that you can make estimates of how long it will take!
