I received this Christmas card the other day from an artist friend Jimmy Orr and each time I look at it a smile starts from with in. Everything about it is just so right, not just colour and compostition but it tells a story, one that you wish you could enter the painting and take part in. I can almost hear the excited chatter of the two friends off across the field with their sledge.
We're almost at the end of the year, a time to re-group ready to start afresh. Last year I wrote a whole screed about what I would be doing and haven't accomplished half of it. So, this year it's not going to be about saying but about doing. First thing I will be doing is going back to having just one blog....this one! You'll find all my news on here as always, though perhaps not on a daily basis, I need to spend more time at the easel and less on the computer.
A new year is an exciting new start, the beginning of the next part in the journey. Thanks for the past year and all the lovely comments you have no idea how encouraging they are. Sometimes it can feel like it's just me and the easel and then I come here and find that someone's been looking over my shoulder. Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and the Happiest New Year.
