    Hi Magda
    Hope everything is foing well – My reagrds to Simon.
    You seem as busy as ever doing so many things – good luck with all.
    I just popped a picture for the Chopin competition but I am afraid I misread the rules- my painting is inspired by Tchaikovsky’s “To a wild rose” So sorry about that.
    I have just got a new computer running Windows 7 so am sorting my files out – but have lost my old website though I have a new one only a few hours old which I have added above.
    Again sorry about my mistake re: Chopin
    My Warmest regards to you and Simon
