Moved Home

We have just spent 3 months in temporary digs as we sold our house and have just moved into our new home a bungalow.  While in digs I did loads of reading, bought 3 crossword books and I also bought myself a colouring book to keep me occupied as we had no wifi and only free TV viewing.  There wasn't much else we could do other then daily walks on the shore.  We still have about 501 things to do so it will be summer time before I can think of painting again, we are still upside down as we are…

Injured Finger

I have been idle for the past two weeks because I sliced a bit of my right index finger and it has only just healed properly.  I am painting A Garden in Summer taken template from my own garden.  It has many layers some are thick with texture so having to wait for the paint to dry between them.  I am having great fun.

Things to do

26th Jan 2017

I am taking a break from painting for a few months as I have some sewing to do and also I need to get fit again after a year of inactivity, so I am taking up yoga. I had a spa day with a friend and had a 55minute massage, the young lady said to me "you are very knotty" I could feel them as she did her magic, it was a little painful but bearable. My body tingled and I had less pain in my legs that night and the next morning The stiffness had eased in my body. So I have to…

Getting Back to Health

17 Aug 2016

At the moment I am only painting with water colours I can do these sitting down, for acrylics I like to stand and at the moment I am not allowed to stand for long.  I am looking forward to recovering fully after my major op so that I can paint in acrylics again.   I have found that painting with water colours on canvas is very interesting the way it performs and blends and if I put too much on I quickly dab it of before it dries.  I can also get more layers than I could on…
