Sneak Peek

Just a quick post with some close up photos of my painting from the e course. Not sure how much I can write about what we are doing but I am having lots of fun and it is very liberating, at last I am painting larger canvasses. My first week with Emily went well apart from her having a cold, and as babies like to share she thought I would like it as well!! To much cuddling I think!

Changing Times.

I must confess that not much painting has been done recently, only three more night paintings and each of them quite different.

I have also done a little bit of painting in my larger sketchbook and have photographed sections of this larger work, all of them are potential paintings.

Times are changing however, and from next week I will probably have less time to paint, my daughter is going back to work, and I will be looking after my Granddaughter three days a week. I am really looking forward to it and am ready for the challenges ahead.
Recently I have been attending a painting and drawing class just to brush up on my skills, I have found it really useful going over things that I had forgotten, it has also helped me to really look at what I am painting and to really see where my inspiration is coming from. I don't want to loose momentum so have decided to do an e course, Bloom True with Flora Bowley which starts next week, I am really excited because hopefully I will get to do some bigger paintings, my three large canvasses are ready and waiting. Not sure how much time I will have for blogging, but hopefully I will be able to do some quick visual posts.

Emily Update

My Granddaughter is 6 months old now and is so beautiful, she is crawling and can just about sit up unaided. We had a little photo session in the garden.
