Thanks Brian for your response ,
Similar to you , I switched to acrylics , for drying reasons and the lack of solvent vapours. which gave me headaches with oils.
Painting has been the golden thread in my life, my job enables me to share and transmit knowledge and encourage others.
Okay if I am honest , no ,I do not always like my social isolation . I try to find reasons for liking it completely , large social gatherings terrify me , and there are few , very few pple I know who are not in a relationship and available for gentle walks in the country. or exhibition visits .
I go alone at times , but find it easier to stay at home , being solitary at home is okay , but being solitary outside is not comfortable at all .
I am not whining , just saying how it is. thanks for listening. I admire your courage and generosity with the volunteer work .
