However, something did FINALLY get finished! Do you remember this painting? Here it is again.
Yes, it was part of a duo...a painting each for two little boys. And I have finally, FINALLY finished them both...Phew!!! So here is the second one, which I called 'Here Be Dragons'. I think their mum was pretty pleased with them. She's going to keep them for Christmas pressies, so I'll have to wait a while yet to find out what the boys think of them!
As for what else has been happening in the attic...or in the general vicinity anyway...spring is most definitely here, the McCartney rose is covered in blooms, the Apricot has almost lost all its flowers already and has all new leaves. My silly jonquils bloomed about a month and a half ago, but we really never got a winter at all. I don't know what the Almond is doing, it doesn't know whether it's coming or going. We've planted out our vegie garden, and a new herb garden, and the garden out the back is actually looking nice and, well, sort of almost slightly organised...as if it had been created by someone who had a vague idea of what they were doing!
Beauty is still waiting for her colour washes, but I'm almost glad now I didn't have to rush to finish her, I think a little pondering time is often a good thing. She will be finished anon!
