A wonderful journey

It’s coming up to the anniversary of my blog ‘Racing Lines’ – My first post was made on 7th July 2012… Just text and no images to try WordPress and see what I could do.

In seven years, the blog has taken me to lots of places and I’ve met some lovely people and made friends – It’s been a great adventure – just with my pens, watercolours and pastels – and my laptop. 

Today, I discovered that the number of people following ‘Racing Lines’ has risen to 3,000, which I find quite incredible. WordPress tells me that there have been 1,578 comments. I can say that each and every one of them is positive, enthusiastic and encouraging. 

So this is a little post to thank all of you who have followed, commented and liked the posts and pictures you have found on ‘Racing Lines’. 

Here is just a small selection from the past seven years, which I hope you enjoy. 🙂



  1. You missed out the best picture… 😉 Congratulations Maxine – here’s to another 7 years… 🥂

    1. Oh Mike! It’s absolutely one of my best! I loved it and so glad that you have it! I deliberately didn’t show any that have been bought by people as I wasn’t sure if that was the right thing to do, but I am most proud of all of them. It is the greatest endorsement for artists as you know. Thanks so much to you and Jude xx
