Fran6 - again thank you for your comments. I do feel though, that if it is possible then I will give something back to the forums from which I have learnt so much.

I also really hope that your are in better health now and sympathise with you, as most of us oldies appear to be going through health issues of one kind or another.

Now I know that I said above that I was finished with limestone, but what the heck, here are a couple which I thought I had already posted but obviously not -

Fran6 - thank you very much; no glass broken :lol:

Now I do not have the artistic knowledge or clever subtleties/nuances that Dinasset possesses. However, a number of his works in his “My Plays” thread, gave me an idea to pursue using monochrome photos of female singers who have impacted my life. So here goes -

The first one below is Adele simply because of her recent, oh so successful tour in OZ. My second one is Françoise Hardy, with whom I fell in love when I first visited France as a 15 year old … and I still remember those lyrics ...

Tous les garçons et les filles de mon âge
Se promènent dans la rue deux par deux
Tous les garçons et les filles de mon âge
Savent bien ce que c'est qu'être heureux
Et les yeux dans les yeux, et la main dans la main 
Ils s'en vont amoureux sans peur du lendemain

A couple of Aussies now, Helen Reddy from way back and from more recently, Missy Higgins. Amazing what GIMP can do with monochrome images -
