It is cottage time and oddly enough, while preparing and packing, I managed to paint. The cherries are nearly black and I wanted to make them redder, but stuck to matching the colour - post Ian's workshop.
There is something exhilarating about painting – the whole creative process, the learnings and the discoveries, and always – the challenges. I started painting in watercolour when the children were leaving home. A few years later, my artist mother suggested oils, and it has become a passion. I share my journey with this blog as I stretch myself with the exhuberant intention of painting daily.
