Hi Vivi. Love the website, artwork and poems. Very uplifting.
Hello Vivien, I have just read your new book of poems Bees, Seas, Birds and Trees. The poems are a pleasures to read. They show your heart felt understanding of all aspects of nature and human emotion. A little tear came to my eye when reading 'Honey' which is a beautiful tribute to a beloved pet rabbit. what a talented lady you are, not only produce such lovely words but to be able to illustrate them with such beautiful artwork.

Hi there, Kate*
Thank you for stopping by & looking at my painting of All Hallows' Church, Gedling.
Best wishes, Vivi xx
Thank you for visiting my website & leaving a lovely comment. Glad you like my paintings & especially 'Spring Blossom'.
Katie says...Hello Vivien, absolutely love your paintings! Each one is so intricate and delicate. My favourite has to be the cherry blossom with the handsome little bumble bee. Look forward to speaking to you soon! Katie (from the barber shop) x

I have just added two sections of comments above, which were lost when I moved to my new Guestbook!
How are you? It felt like a long time since we were last in touch, so thought I would stop by and look at your poetry site. If you're on Facebook, then it would be wonderful to connect with you on there. I still write but no longer publish my work in small press magazines, which I can't afford. I have recently started to read some of my old small press magazines again and still appreciate your poetry on a deep level. Love to you and Ian, your furry friends, etc. Did we have cockatiels when I was last in touch? Lost the linnies and both canaries, but still have some budgies and finches. xxx
I have only just discovered that Mandy accidentally put a few of your cards in with mine when I collected them from Muse Gallery.
Lovely work: especially the fiord scene.
Will post them on, if you could supply your address.
Yours in art,
Being an artist myself, I am particularly interested in your artwork, it is beautiful. Hope your are feeling well. Enjoyed your website immensely.
Heard a lot about you from Ian, we will have to get together sometime and I can tell you stories about what Ian used to get up to at school!!!
Vivien, It is a lovely web-site and a wonderful example of what can be achieved. The butterflies are friendly company. The paintings are cheerful bright and breezy with interesting content.
Good luck with your creative writing and lokforward to seeing you again. Best Wishes for Christmas and much luck in the New Year, Steve x
