oct19-portraits-landscapes

Having a go with a new function for adding art to markdown. The previous function I used to do this would take all the artwork for today (galleries, year, month, day) and it would create the markdown from this data. Embedding the images into the markdown file. I then had to open the markdown file up and add in comments about each piece of artwork. I don't want to do this. I want to do this with a python function. So now this function asks for the piece of artwork, and a comment, and then appends the data into the markdown. I think a front-end would really help which renders the image and the name, allowing user to type comment in textbox.

Anyway, here is some artwork.
