Hallelujah!! I can post again.

After a week of tearing my hair out and just about going stark, staring mad, I am once again able to post my work. The problem has been computer viruses, spyware, malware and whatever else seems to infest this technological, mind-bending minefield - MY COMPUTER!!!! Apart dropping a few EC's and making the odd comment, I've not been able to do any internet dependant work.
Well, I seem to have it beat (for the moment) and the computer is now running at its previous (not actually that fast) speed.
To celebrate, I am posting one of my wife Maeve's colourful works.

Out of the desert
Mixed media on watercolour paper
8 1/4" x 11 3/4"

I think she got the idea after watching a television programme on Egypt.
If you are interested in purchasing this, it is available on ebay

Hi John...glad that you are up and running again...there is such frustration that comes when technology doesn't's not normal, what happens to us...hope it's smooth sailing from here on Mave's work...such a free yet controlled innocence...

Glad you are back up and sorry to hear about the viruses etc. That is one of the many reasons I use a MAC...non of these problems!

Love your work especially this one.

Ditto to what BW said.. get yourself a MAC and all those problems go away. Then you can concentrate on your work! Enjoy your art and your blog, BTW.

Thank you for your comments from myself and Maeve to:
Amy - all my fingers are crossed hoping I get no more nasties in my computer.
bwphoto,Mark - would get a MAC if only finances would allow it. Till then it's "batten down the hatches" and fight off the marauding viruses!!
On a whimsy - absolutely agree
DCRose - forunately not
