Trench Art…

Brian Ridley strikes again, this time I received a recipiecal gift, this stunning piece of contemporary trench-art was sent to me, in exchange for a few items that were of interest to Brian…

Brian dabbles in trench-art, and quite successfully if I might add, well I am the now the proud owner of one of his pieces of trench-art, it “I assume” was for the bits and pieces I posted to Brian… I don’t have to think about this at all, as I know i have come off better in this exchange, as mine was pre-made items sent as a gift, where as this was a piece of contemporary trench-art, in which Brian had to sit down and physically make, spending valuable time at his craft… I will say publicly, Brian’s gift from me was sent without anything needed or expected in return, but I am appreciative and well chuffed of his kind gift in return, thank you Brian….
