Michael Edwards





Stiff from sleep

with aching limbs

my stirring body

belongs to the day.

      Yes day follows the night and a good stretch while still in bed does it for me my friend. Love those different trees. - your talent with brush is amazing.

      • Michael Edwards

        Thanks Fay - just ordered some more art materials but thankfully my hobby pays for itself.

      • Renzi

        Mister Michael, the day is yours 💪💓

      • Louis Gibbs

        Nice four-liner and an interesting assortment of trees, Michael. I'm always impressed by those who can, seemingly with ease, create something of beauty on a canvas. Not me, unfortunately.

        • Michael Edwards

          Much appreciate your kind words - thanks Louis

          Back from working in
          My lads new home...Again

          • Michael Edwards

            Ay up - I know all about children - never stop worrying or doing things for them - we've had a grandson for a sleepover while mum and dad have been partying - he's still asleep at the moment but all will break out when he wakes which won't be long now, He's 5 and have to admit we love him to bits.

            • P.H.Rose

              Ha ha.. I'm sat here Michael
              Grandson next to me on
              His iPad, granddaughter
              In the next bedroom not
              So very happy....
              Family eh !!!!

              Hope the day has gone well. I remember getting excited about a water color demo years ago. Whereas lots of artists have trouble selling their work, yours has a wonderful appeal. Wish I was still in the acquiring mode, but I am letting go. Cheers. Mamosas help with the aches.

              • Michael Edwards

                Thanks Augustus - such a great medium but so much undervalued in monetary terms - never mind I do quite well although most of the takings come from demos and workshops rather than sale of actual paintings. Do you mean samosas - if so keep eating.

                • Augustus

                  Oops, misspelled, champagne and orange juice= Mimosa.
