  1. YOu really are talented! I love the Wivenhoe picture. I’ve been in that pub The Rose and Crown I think it’s called. My sister lived just a little further along the quay and her husband still living there. It’s a quirky little place!

  2. Roland, you have enthralled me this sunny morning. These paintings are exquisite;
    the colours delicate and yet strong. You make them all shine with beauty from without and within.
    Have you had exhibitions of your work? Guess I could have checked on the net.😊 .
    Thank you s show!
