So good, you’ve really got an artist’s eye for integrating tones & colours so nothing jars. Talking of jars I (now) see you need reading glasses too, I wasn’t wearing mine when I surveyed your workbench & thought that badge in your brushes wineglass was from these guys’ fan-club…

WOW , that's so weird you made that Bon Jovi reference .
Back in the late 80's he had a house built on the Manasquan River and I ran the phone lines to it . Got a cee - note tip for that one .
He's a very cool guy , not a snobby rock star , real down to earth dude . Was very interested in the work I was doing , not in a nosey way but in a really wanted to know how things worked kinda way .

Fantastic work as usual. You and Jerry are very humbling to watch in action. BTW my workbench looks pretty similar, but at least yours hasn't got a Vincent petrol tank invading the space!

It's goin' good dude, not able to check in here as often as I would like!
Really enjoy how you work Cheyenne, don't worry too much 'bout the "pig sty", it's still a workspace. You should see mine
I also end up with a sweet spot amongst the clutter .

Cheers
Dave
