Congratulations Anita. A lovely sketch, thoughtful column, and great opportunity to share what so many of us love - our visual journals. I too hope that my grandchildren will know me better through my sketches and preserve the journals for their children.

Congratulations! Nice picture and column layout.

A lovely beginning, Anita. I'm sure your column is going to become one of the most popular features of those papers.

It's a wonderful vehicle to promote the joy of sketching.

And, I bet, The Fens will be fielding an enormous group of converts at the next Sketchcrawl.

Anita such a wonderfully thought out introductory column. Always loved the sketch - you have such quality ideas for your compositions. Having the pleasure of looking at them in your journals, you feel they just grow organically from your pen... but its that amazing creative talent you've had hidden away for so long. Let it blossom my friend from this opportunity. The Fens will become a new mecca for artists all looking for this young, talented, inspirational, true to herself artist we all know as ANITA DAVIES. I am so excited she is my best pal. So proud of you.

Anita, Congratulations again!! Do you hear the champagne cork popping over there as I celebrate on this side of the Atlantic? This first column looks super! I love your sketches and I'm so glad that so many more people will get to see them and read your thoughts. Bravo!!
