What a Summer
What a summer...or should that be, what summer? It seemed to never start. I had hoped for long lazy days on the deck outside my studio, painting and taking in the sun. Well surely that's one of the perks of an artist, to have the benefit of enjoying the outdoors in the better weather.
Mmmm...the reality was that my summer days were spent setting up the big table and easle on the deck only to run back in to the studio with the fear that the rain was going to splurge my latest creation. It aint fun having to keep running in out of your studio like a loony with canvases flying and dust sheets flapping like sails in the wind. Especially when your deck sits about fifteen feet in the air and you can be seen for blooming miles. I'm sure some folk thought I was trying to take sail from that deck rather than paint.
However, it wasn't all doom and gloom.
Children are like little rays of sunshine and throughout the summer I met a number of gorgeous little ones through my art. Two of who are named Sophie and Bailey, a sister and brother who love their garden and were a joy to paint.
Thank you for brightening my summer children. x
