Andrew Wyeth .. never heard of him until today. Stunning stuff.
A talented man, no doubt. I love the simplicity of his "Caldwell's Island" watercolour, really like that.
I tried to post one I really like but I can't ... Because I don't know how to. Waaaaugh
That's not a leopard!

Generally right click and "Save as" to your "My Pictures" file should do it unless copyright stops it. There's usually a way around, opening in it "Paint" or something then saving it to your files that way. Then just go to "attachments/add files here at the bottom of the message and select the one you want to attach. This is the one of Wyeth's I like for its simplicity.

Knowing your affinity for Japan and its culture, this is a painting I did a while back of Fujiyama in a very simple style.

That looks quite Japanese.

Spotted this on an art website I frequent, under the title " Love Song of Alfred J. Prufrock. Means naught to me, but perhaps our own similarly named afficinado can figure it?

It's to commemorate me joining the Lib Dems.
In a world that has decided
That it's going to lose its mind
Be more kind, my friends, try to be more kind.
