No, I did not SNOG my painting!


8" x 10" Oil on Museum Quality Cradled Gessoboard


...As much as it was tempting to simply pucker up and give my painting a big old smackerooni, the idea of spreading toxic oil paint on to my lips did not seem to me, the most sensible one!

However pleased I have been with a painting, I have never yet felt the urge to actually SNOG one! I mean, that would just be plain weird, right?

So, instead I mixed the exact shade of my lipstick with my paints, like a well behaved Artist (who does not have a death wish) should :0)

...Here in the UK, there is no phrase more used than, 'I'll put the kettle on'...
How is it that no matter what the crisis, we always reach for a teabag? What is it about a cup of tea that makes a disaster seem just a little more tolerable? 
...It's one of life's great mysteries!
I find a nice cold beer to be more effective, but each to their own!

I'm ba-aaaack... And guess what!!!

Oh, how I've missed everything arty during my unavoidable break!

 I finally got back in to my poor, neglected studio last Saturday, having had no option but to take an eight week break. And I can tell you that I just don't feel like me at all when I'm not actively painting! Not painting is PANTS!

We are part way through extending the kitchen and as you can imagine, it's been like living on a building site. The sheer volume of cleaning has been exhausting! We've had ceilings pulled down, walls knocked through... My home could, at times have easily been mistaken for the Sahara Dessert from the amount of 'dust dunes' in there!

Meanwhile since the 1st of July we have also had a freakish number of social engagements to attend. No word of a lie, last Saturday was the first free day I have had since the 1st July! As much as it has all been lovely, I have been willing it all to end so I can get back in the studio... and it will only get better now. Phew!

Meanwhile, the September Issue of 'Paint Magazine' finally plopped through my letter box on the 1st... And guess who's on the cover...

...Oh, and guess who's also inside...


...Yep! That would be li'le ole me!
Who'd have thought?? 

So, I'll be back soon, I hope with a new painting. 
Meanwhile here's one example of some of the scenes I've been arriving home to recently...

...You feel my pain, right?
