Amazed to find myself painting for the second time in one week - this is beginning to become a habit! Its so nice to wake up in the morning and find myself really looking forward to working on something.

Oil on Canvas, 16" x 16"
Finding my feet, slowly .....................
Trying to learn to be patient, not only with the paint, but also with myself. Suffering from that one two steps forward, one step back but hoping that taking it slowly will bring greater rewards.
Trees as usual causing me heartache.

So I haven't posted for a month - great excuses coming up - new blog with just sketches on (so I have been posting, just not here), been on holiday for a week in Bavaria (gorgeous) and I have been preparing for a new piece coming up which is a bit like climbing a mountain!

"Pestle and Mortar"
Charcoal on Paper
I can't believe it's nearly a year since I last posted on here. I've been suffering from major loss of inspiration and drive but am determined to strap on my pencils/brushes/pastels, climb back into the saddle and face that blank paper/canvas.
The only thing that I have done in the past few months apart is a little vague doodling and reworking of some past paintings.
