Well that was bit of a surprise. 3000 pageviews on Saturday (after two years) and 5000+ on Sunday.
I've never really seen the need to have a journal as I've never thought my days to be of much interest to any one else - spreadsheets, budgets and interminable emails aren't that interesting to me either but this is the only way I can say a really heartfelt thank you to all of you who have stopped by in the past 48 hours (and prior to that if I've not said it before). A big thanks to snowmask and artistaunjuli for putting Smaug up there for everyone to catch a glimpse of. It is probably my personal favourite of my fantasy stuff it sure pleased the wee boy who's bedroom wall it now hangs on.
To those of you who are wondering where the jewels are on his underside he's not got them because he hasn't massacred the dwarves and got a bed of them to lie on yet. (Thus the problem of painting the damn things realistically in watercolour is got around)
Again, many thanks to all who have commented, put me on watch or just stopped by for a look.
