times passes by and then all of a sudden you realise that is is weeks, nay months since you have spoken to friends, friends who were so sweet as to take the time to leave wonderful comments on old black and white drawings, comments that made my heart swell and smiles came to my lips. I am sorry that I have negleted you, but I have not forgotton you. Life has just sort of taken over recently and it has not put me in the frame of mind for chatting, but I am trying to shake it off now, and look towards the festive season.
There has been a little painting taking place in the evenings….
when the day quietens downs and the curtains are drawn against the dark night,
I sit down and open my pallet of colours and find a brush and small canvas,
and one by one
angels have appeared and calmed my mind. I had hoped to put these in my Etsy shop in good time for Christmas, but I am now wondering whether to leave it until the new year, as time seems to be running away and I am still tweeking them now and again. Christmas seems to be creeping up quite fast now, A huge (for us) Christmas tree arrived yesterday and is standing in the corner of the room waiting for adornment, it smells wonderful, of pine resin and forest,
I could almost imagine a little red squirrel appearing from within the branches. Can you see – it even has fir cones on it, magical! Speaking of forests, this is another creature that is in the process of appearing on a canvas….
Thank you to all those who left such wonderful comments on my last post, they all meant so much to me, I would love to find my way back into illustration, at the moment it all seems a way off, but hopefully one day ….
