Phase one in which Boris got our votes, some reflections on the brexit results and a bit of watercolour paining in Ramsgate, Thanet Argus for 1909 adverts

I am suffering the stun of the outvoted today as I voted to stay in and as the public have spoken, out we come. I suppose my first thoughts are how to make the best of it, personally, for my business and how as a country we make the best of it.

At the moment I am wondering if this means Boris for prime minister and even Boris Island in more than one sense of the phrase. Always look on the bright side of life, comes to mind.

I didn’t get much painting done at breakfast or lunch today


A bit more on the watercolour of the inside of The Belgian Café here in Ramsgate over breakfast




A bit more of the watercolour from outside Enoteca or is it Οινοθήκη Café here in Ramsgate over lunch.


Painting in the people is the new and therefore tricky one for me with these local pictures,  

As there is a Thanet Argus for 1909 on my desk at the moment here are the adverts

  1. The Windmill advert is very fitting. Support home industries and encourage British labour.

Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
