Moombaki Display

Lots of me here

The three little ones are mine

Some pictures of works on display 
at Moombaki Wines
back home for the 
Art Trail

On a personal level I am doing ok
Slowly starting to do stuff other than
read and watch TV
Though my attention span 
and level of focus 
still remains quite low.
But I am trying to do something
in the studio
