Such a little piece, and yet it's taken me hours to finish it. So much detail in one tiny 9 x 13cm space. But I've enjoyed it so much. I think I will do more of these, perhaps they are something I can do during the long summer, when it's almost impossible to paint because it dries so quickly, and the heat can be so oppressive sometimes I find it hard to think. I'm really NOT a summer person, we had a taste of what's to come today, 37º Celsius, and I just wilt at these temperatures. It will be another long, hot, dry summer, and my garden is already looking a little woebegone!
My first painting as a 'professional' artist...and my mantra!
The kettle is on, please do come in, up the winding stair and if you're tall, you might have to duck at the top to avoid the ridge beam! Feel free to browse amongst my bits and bobs, and apologies if you have to blow dust off a few things! But please remember, the written musings and painted pictures here (unless otherwise credited) are my work and therefore copyright.
To my fellow wanderers and footloose followers-an update!
If you like what you see and read in this little corner of the giant attic in the sky that is the world wide web, please consider 'following' my progress as I wander along, getting distracted by butterflies and interesting cloud shapes as I go.
