I am a boots gal by winter and a flip flop girl by summer. Its gorgeous today, so I rummaged in the wardrobe and left my socks behind. :-) Maddy took this photo. We're sat on spare pond liner "supervising" as MrC digs a pond for the garden. G & T anyone?
Today I have been in the studio finishing work for the next Arts Group exhibition which takes place on 2nd - 17th May. Having decided to submit oils rather than acrylics this year, I have had to do some planning (for a change) to make sure the layers all get finshed (and have time to dry). I am cutting it extremely fine (again - as per usual) but I am very pleased with the results so far. This is a large-ish box canvas. Its not finished yet (eek!) but should be by tomorrow. Since I am building up the colour by using lots of thin layers of oil, it is drying very quickly. Sometimes I miss my acrylics.......sniff.
I have a passion for painting which I have been able to develop these past few years when I have finally become old enough and wise enough to stop doing what I was told and start doing what I truly wanted to do. I heartily recommend it.
