Michael Edwards




In matters of finance there is no doubt

when money comes in the sport goes out.


  • dusk arising

    Great picture. Well guessing that your poetry is your sport, it's recent absence from MPS must mean there's lots of money coming in.

    Good to see you ME.

    • Michael Edwards

      Not sure about the money but -yes - two big commissions to start and dealing with my wife's health problems.

      • dusk arising

        I'm sorry to learn your wife is unwell Michael. I do not want to pry at all but wish you both well.

      • Fay Slimm.

        A truth indeed Michael and good to see you back posting your wonderful water colours again.

      • Goldfinch60

        Oh so very true Michael.


        • Michael Edwards

          It was one of my father's sayings - he was against any form of professional sport which is probably taking it to extremes but I know too well where he was coming from.

          • Goldfinch60

            I would totally agree with him. Messi receives, earns is the wrong word, £250,000 per day!!

            Great Painting, love the shadows and detail, and the pint size of wisdom

          • Doggerel Dave

            Picture makes me all nostalgic again. Middle building a pub (lettering over doorway)?
            With respect to health problems , wish you both the very best outcome,

            • Michael Edwards

              Thanks Dave - the outlook is not what we would wish for but we keep our fingers crossed.

            • L. B. Mek

              that duality conundrum of balance: in life..
              a wonderful shorty Michael

            • Poetic Dan

              Definitely a favourite and a trigger of mine, yet we made it become so!
