    he he, well I started painting....and the card started to ripple (there isnt anyone in town that does artist materials) so Terry went into the city while I was at work at got some proper watercolour board for me. But it was a blessing really that I ditched that picture, as I didnt like the photo ~ I dont like painting animals from above!.

    I'm doing a close up of Percy's head instead, and I think the lady who its for ..would like that better, and I've been given longer time to paint it

    I'll do this one instead:

    1st pic wasn't the best angle, but seemed to have more character to it, though that might be hard to capture.

    Urrrr... I hate to ask Sueanne, do you use PhotoShop? It can be great to roughly preview the effect you want to achieve by hand very quickly (as a rough, using Filters/Gallery Effects), and then paint that? (Percy looks fine in #1, kinda perky, but a bit sad in #2 - I'm sure you can make him "smile" tho, and cute in #3 - ahhh tricky choice!)
    Dyin' to see your finished painting

    No, not used Photoshop yet KiwiElf, but I'd like to have a go. I rather like the ears in the last one, they are easier to paint... yeah I think I'll go for it! I have to cut the board tonight and start all over again watch this space...

    Currency reset for india :

    I have had the chance to chat to a well informed investor on this issue, his view which I agree with is:

    THIS IS MODI'S GENIUS MASTER-STROKE and INDIA'S GREAT LEAP FORWARD

    What is happening is that the middle-sized denomination currency notes have been ruled illegal. Non tender. People in posession of these notes need to go to a bank to exchange for a new version. but this is not about cash. What this is about is tax. What has been happening is that the vast majority of small enterprises have been operating outside of any state & tax registration, so effectively they have been part of the 'black' or un-taxed un-regulated economy.

    By forcing these traders to exchange their cash, Modi is forcing them to:
    a) Open a bank account, and deposit the defunct cash.
    b) register as a business for tax purposes.They will not be able to exchange the cash without a tax registration number.

    The consequence of this will be hopefully a large increase in the state's tax receipts. This will facilitate a combination of tax cuts and state investment in infrastructure etc, which is desperately needed. It really is India progressing into a first world economy. It means that India is in general a great 'buy' for investors, and will see rapid economic growth.

    I asked how this huge change could be successfully imposed, given it would mean a huge increase in banking infrastructure, plus state taxation apparatus. He said the before the ambush, Modi has prepared carefully, and for example new smart phone payment apps have been developed.

    So congratulations, good luck, buy Indian, and I hope the transition is not too painful for people...
    we have subcontracted the business of healing people to Companies who profit from sickness.

    Many thanks for that information BabySteps, it was confusing to me why the Indian gov. was making more people in poverty. I think they should have made a warning to the public first about the middle-sized denominated notes and what will happen.
