You did good to get this shot, Frank - and I don't know how they could paint with their hands exposed to the cold!
Frank L Croston.: Lucky shot, Ell' but thanks, tough guys!
This shows true dedication...I wonder what they wear when it's coldwink
Frank L Croston.: Yes it does, same as this, it was cold....smile
this is a fantastic photo of two dedicated artists Frank...

Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Peter, not on your own, I didn't take anything for a couple of months.

Crikey they look miserable but I suppose they're concentrating. A fine shot indeed Frank
Frank L Croston.: I'm pretty sure thats what it was, Chris, thank you.

Art is obviously a driving force for them both
Frank L Croston.: Indeed, Richard, harder work than snapping, every credit to them.
great moment capture of the artists at work
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Chantal, glad you like it.
I love how we get a glimpse of what the fellow is painting. His easel is sitting on a tripod meant for a camera. Very impressive too is the stone slabs. I would love those at my place.
Frank L Croston.: I would have liked to take a look, but didn't want to intrude, though I could have given him the " painted anything good today" speech, like I get when taking pic's. The slabs will have come from the many slate mines in that area.
I know just where this is from my visit in 2013. The lady looks a bit of a character in her choice of cold weather clothing but it is also an excellent shot, this couple pursuing their painting hobby while you and Elizabeth do likewise with your cameras.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Brian, I'm glad you have had the pleasure of a visit there.
