memories … picture-less post

The last few weeks been all about memories …

the Round Hill art show week was all about memories of Jamaica; places I grown up, spots I’d been to and t’ings I’d seen and done … and the Jamaican art i produced on the back of it.

and all this, these times and places – the incidents of life … they’re all there in the art 
walk good!
