Just a quickie today - when I started doing these bogs a few weeks ago, I hadn’t realised to what extent a certain member of my  family would want to become involved and to what lengths she would go to become the centre of my attention. Meet Jasmine, my beautiful springer – she’s the very pretty looking spaniel on the left of this painting .     And in full gorgeous glory in this painting     We have now renamed her in honour of her enthusiastic homage to my new vocation, as Peak...
