Hello there. How are you? It’s a little over a month since my last blog post and I’m sure you won’t be at all surprised to learn that what I planned to do during my time away and what actually occurred are two completely different things. As unglamorous as it sounds, I had planned to catch up on housework, beat the garden into submission and paint a few pictures — and I have had a lovely time even though the housework–gardening–painting thing didn’t really happen. The reality is that I spent most of my time working on several graphic design jobs (logos and business cards, which I love doing). And now it’s September, it’s spring and it’s time to get back into blogging again : )
I did manage to complete one painting while I was away. Would you believe it’s called ‘Sidetracked’? It will be for sale once I’ve finished varnishing it.
The different textures in this landscape really appeal to me. I love the clearly defined sections of grass, stone, railway track and sand. And whether you see that patch of blue at the top of the painting as sea or sky is entirely up to you.
