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?
