The spring break is over (sigh of relief)
and you have no idea
how good it feels to hold a paint brush
and actually paint on paper.
I have spent the last two weeks
doing no art at all.
I have been fertilised,
yes been fertilised not fertilising.
I got in and cleaned out our duck pond
which had over a foot of sludge
from 17 years of ducky doo doo.
I had welly boots on but I'm sure I have grown and inch since I shovelled
out all that stuff.
I did get to wield a paint brush though.
I decided to repaint some garden pots.
This is the before shot
and this is the after shot.
It really brightens up the garden and patio area.
Today I am getting back to normal
and painting a commissioned
pet portrait (my first).
Here is a peek
I have only just started so there isn't
much to see yet. I've just put in some darks
and I'm developing some colour.
At least I have brush to paper,
I really missed that.
Now you have seen mine,
hop on over to Julia's Stamping Ground
and see what everyone else is doing
on their desks this fine wednesday.
PS. I have some pet portraits advertised in my Etsy shop now (see side bar),
if anyone is interested in having one done.
