Have decided to keep a Blog on my wesbite now with any news / new paintings that I may be working on.
Had a busy week with a Hospital trip for my daughter Gemma to have a kidney scan on Tuesday. Unfortunately we were there longer than necessary while the Doctor tried to locate two kidneys (she only has one). I thought he looked stressed and seemed to be taking ages!
It's her birthday party tomorrow and we're taking 14 four years olds to a farm park so keeping our fingers crossed that the weather men have the forecast wrong!
My son Thomas has also won the class Squirrel (Sammy) for the weekend which means keeping a 'Squirrel diary' of what he gets upto over the weekend. The boys get very excited about having Sammy to stay, but unfortunately the Mums aren't so keen! So need to think of some exciting adventures for 'Sammy the Squirrel'.
On the art side I have been working on my Bargue drawings. Have really grown to love doing these and it's something I can do in the evening when the children are tucked up in bed. I'm not doing tham strictly as described in the book but non the less I feel that it's really improving my observation skills and would highly recommend them. With these and the little sketch books I keep in my handbag for sketching on the school run I try and fit in as much drawing as possible.
Anyway, have a busy evening wrapping presents so better get on with it. Might have to open a can of lager to aid the process!
