At last the scaffolding is gone and the building work seems to have more or less finished and my studio feels like my creative space again.
I didn’t know how important it was until it was temporarily taken away. Now having re-organised it and gradually relaxing after having felt in a state of siege I am planning some new work for March.
I did several portraits this month, one commissioned , but the others were of my family and I have just finished an interesting commission of a colour painting from a black and white photo.
Painted my first painting of the calanche and have plans for some more.
It was a pity that I couldn’t put my plans for different work into action earlier due to the disturbance , but have learned some valuable life lessons.
Have an idea for a large family portrait which I may begin next week……and maybe I will eventually get started on a painting a day………
