Willliam Edward Mayes (1861-1952) was a prolific painter of water colours of the Norfolk Broads, located in East Anglia, UK. Norfolk is a lowland with many beautiful waterways and windmills. The boats he portrays are known as wherries and are typical of the boats used on the Norfolk Broads. W. E. Mayes was my great-grandfather's brother. Sadly, I haven't inherited his artistic genes. I would be grateful if any Jigidi friends could supply any further information on him or his works. Thanks.

Happy new year, Milena, I hope 2018 will be a very good year for you in every way. And a good year for all of us on this planet - we need peace.
I'm sad to read that you lost your dear Nicky recently. That's terrible. But 21 years old - wow, that's very old for a cat. My oldest cat was 19 when he died. We miss them terribly when they go. Like you, I hope Aisha and Ofelia will have long, happy and healthy lives.
Little Amelia is indeed a very pretty baby. You must be so happy to have a little granddaughter. I hope she lives near you so that you see her often. I think your new year will be extra happy because of Amelia.
Best wishes to you and your family for 2018. ♥☺♥

Thank you, Linda - yes, we are all OK (only two months ago we lost Nicky - our cat 21 years old) so I hope that Aisha and another cat (Ofelia - she is one ragdoll) can be with us still many years.
Have a wonderful days
Milena

Dear Linda. Thank you so much for sending me a card. It warms my Heart to get these "get-well-cards" from Jigidifriends.
The mouse is giving redwine as medicin. I got 5 bottles yesterday and some Christmas cookies so "medicin" is in the house for some weeks :-) I must not drink more than one glas each day ;-) Again a warm thank you for thinking of me - :-)♥

You may not express the artistic talents but you do express a generous caring heart. Thank you for all you do.

Yes, I have twelve, all purchased at auction and all of scenes of the Norfolk Broads (a large system of rivers, canals and lakes in East Anglia, UK). This was the region where I spent my childhood, and I still love all flat, watery landscapes today.
This is an awful photo, but it's the only one I have which is big enough for Jigidi. I've promised Ank that I'll apply my mind to finding out how my camera works and will then take some hopefully better photos for posting here.
Thanks for the 42nd solve! ☺☺☺

How wonderful to have such a fine artist in your family. I love water colours (such a delicate but unforgiving medium!). Do you have any of his paintings at home - if you do you are very fortunate - they are beautiful

A beauty Linda, pity you can see the photographer in the painting. That make it a bit indistinct (? I hope I use the right word). Please try to make photos of the paintings you have at home. It would be nice to see them. Thanks for showing this one. Hugs ♥♥♥
