Bear 7 tonal sketch and some Puppy love...
You wouldn't believe how hard it has been to get a chance to sit down at my computer and write this post! My time has been slipping through my fingers at an alarming rate, ever since we went to Yorkshire to choose our Puppy a couple of weekends ago!
After that there was lots of preparation to do.
Apart from shopping for bowls, toys, grooming stuff, a bed... you know - all the usual things - we also had to redecorate the back coat room which makes a perfect space for him to feel safe at night.
Of course you know how when you decorate even one tiny room, somehow the entire house is affected? And alarmingly, my nesting instinct kicked in, which is the strong urge to clean everything in sight! I only remember that happening twice before and both times I was pregnant!
Luckily, the cleaning Fairy showed up to help, in the form of my Mum - who was equally excited about the pending arrival :0)
And of course then there was another trip to Yorkshire last Sunday, which is 5 hours each way to collect him. And once he'd arrived - well... I might as well have had another baby, lol!
So - I have literally not done anything 'arty' what so ever for about three weeks!!!
Anyway - before all of this, I had completed a full size tonal sketch of bear 7, which I can show you, while making the most of the Puppy snoozing at my feet!
Hmm... I need your opinion - With or without the curtain tassel?
What do you think?
I honestly don't know whether to announce a bloggy holiday at this point, because I have no idea how quickly I will be able to progress with this or anything else! All I do know is that I am getting twitchy to paint!
Hmm... maybe I should just say that my blog posts may be a little sporadic for a while...
Anyway - here are a few photo's of little 'Sherlock'...
...How could I possibly not be distracted???
