That was the week that was

Its been very manic chez Cook recently....entertaining children 24/7 and being a WAHM have proved very challenging this week. Add to that an incontinent dog, a cat that makes Sweeny Todd look moderate and a shortage of wine and its no wonder my left eye keeps twitching. Its not all bad news as I have completed some works which I'll be posting over the next few days. Having a sleepless 3-year-old means I have only but a snatched moment to post.

Here is the commission from a husband to his wife.
I was aiming for restful and loving.
Its quite big.....45 x 60 cm and I am especially pleased with the stamens. If you double click to see the larger image you hopefully will see what I mean.

More to post tomorrow.....for now my attention is being most vocally demanded elsewhere. Sigh.

That’s come out really well Sue, I think the composition gets across the theme you were going for really well and I love the different textures…especially the background…I’m amazed you can get any work done with such a demanding household…

I agree with Graham ... especially with the hints of other things in the background. Your client should be very happy.
