Unearthed very old works of "art"

It's been ages.
Here are a few drawings and paintings which I found while looking for stuff to put in our newly acquired studio (formerly known as "Alison's room") The studio will double up as a guest bedroom so don't worry you travellers, there will always be somewhere to put your head down whenever the need arises. (you'll just be surrounded by (mainly ancient) works of "art."
Any comments about this new content will be cautiously received and duly noted and will also be appreciated.
Hunting out old stuff will help to give us both inspiration and help us make use of the studio. Although the basics have been done (decorating; new flooring; new blind on order and new double Z bed installed etc.) we still have to furnish it with things that will suite its function.
