This last week has been insanely
busy, alas not with art.
My desk is still strewn
with bits of cards.
They are getting there but very slowly.
I have put a few together
but I'm thinking these Christmas Cards
may become Easter Cards soon :(
The reason for no art is my parents,
they are getting old and have decided
to move to a retirement village.
My friend and I have spent the last week
cleaning, de-cluttering, cleaning some more
and de-cluttering etc.
My eldest daughter is a Real Estate Agent
and the same day she advertised mum's
house on the internet,
she sold it!!!
Yes, she sold it and for $55,000
more than we needed!!
That's my girl.
They don't have to move until after
so we can relax and enjoy
I had my last art class for the year today
and I have started to put in
some dramatic glazing
on my bird.
This isn't the prettiest of stages
and there is a long way to go
but it's coming along nicely.
I'm not sure if I'm brave enough
to finish it by myself
as my teacher gives me great colour
I'll have a break and see if I feel
I've got plenty more canvasses
to play with!!
Little Miss is on summer holidays
from tomorrow, so not sure
how much art will get done.
I am hoping to experiment
with texture paste,
so I might have to share it with her.
That's my little mess for the week,
now hop on over to
and see the other desks
around the world this
