Miss the Christmas wishes but wish you and yours all the best for 2021.

Wonderful painting! 

Retirement, would you recommended it?   Hard to know when to stop.
Cheers, Annie

Annie, I actually retired from Engineering beginning of 1994 at age of 60 and went full time teaching art. It almost a year now since completely handing over to Nolan. 26 years after my first  :2funny:  retirement I finally went into full time retirement  :2funny: :yippee:  and I love it. There is only one problem: Nolan has to every now and then tap my hand to remind me that I have actually retired  :o . He looks after me very well  :clap: :clap:

Hi Dennis,
Fully agree with you, retirement is not the lack of work or studies, it is a freer choice to do the work or studies with limited responsibilities to others and hopefully without having to factor financial consideration into the decision.  I am following your path, after 40 y in phase 1,  I am starting phase 2.  With the next 25 y for maths, painting, knitting, and gardening.  I haven't decide on phase 3 yet, lots of time (I hope).

p.s.  Happy to hear Nolan is good to you  :angel:
Cheers, Annie

Yesterday I painted this 9" x 12" South African scene in oils. It is from a photo I took many years ago while driving through the Southern Free State. Beautiful countryside.
