fantastic--well done. Felt a complete idiot when I spent a few
seconds looking for the second painting only to realise that they
were both on the same canvas. Had me fooled there Jamie.
I thought you would like to know that the girls in my
year 12 tutor group noticed your painting on the way out of

probably spend time on the table with a lit candle.
Thank you very much from both of us.
