Remember me? That girl who used to post weekly on her blog...?
Well, I am back at last - even if it is with a teeny-weeny, itsy-bitsy piece of art!
A few days ago, my Sister-in-Law asked me to paint a badger in the corner of the house sign she had just had made...
And why a badger...?
It only took about half an hour, but I really enjoyed it!
Meanwhile, I received this text from my own Sister, who had obviously just had another look at my blog to see if I had actually posted anything yet...
I imagine you might have thought that I haven't been painting at all, but actually I have - even with the distraction of the new vacuum cleaner, AKA Sherlock!
You may remember I was finding being responsible for a new puppy and painting, quite the challenge! Well, something had to give - and I decided that for the sake of my sanity, I needed to take the pressure off and have a break from blogging. I needed to just paint when I could until things had settled in to a routine again.
Anyway, the vacuum cleaner is getting used to things now and I am finally able to paint a little more, without having to worry so much about what he is hoovering up!
I ought to be posting the finished pear, only it isn't quite finished yet - but nothing a few more brush strokes won't achieve.
What I have actually been concentrating on is the new bear :0)
I have really been getting stuck in and so far, it has practically been painting its self!
I am really enjoying this one. I'd say I am around 2/3 of the way through it now.
So you see, I could have done all sorts of emergency posts, but then I wouldn't have got any of the bear done at all!
Anyway - in case you haven't already been introduced to the new vacuum...
...By the way, the vacuum cleaner is the one on the right - the one on the left is now entirely redundant!
