Eggstra special art.

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 22 May 2013 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

Mrs. Curly and I have spent an awful lot of time visiting the Northern Cancer Care Centre at the Freeman Hospital in Newcastle Upon Tyne recently. It is a marvellous facility and the personal "service" and treatment are both exceptionally good. On most days of the week they have "artists in residence" working on creating a more relaxing atmosphere around the place, and this lady was producing some "eggstra" special eggs at Easter time this year.

This is such a great idea! Wish more hospitals and clinics do the same thing! And I happen to have a special liking for these "Easter Trees"...just because I always enjoy Christmas and all the decorations!
