It’s the ” living nativity ” tonight.
I’m going to try and not go out until about 8pm to make sure that it’s properly started.
Hopefully I will take lots of photos. Which will be a pale reflection of what is actually there.
You can’t photograph atmosphere or emotion or pride or gratitude…..or the feeling of having just stepped into the past.
I will try though.
Today I mostly worked on my new big commission which I am painting in a different style and using a particular set of colours. It’s quite interesting and a nice project to keep me going over Christmas.
It’s fun using big brushes.
One of my portrait commissions left today and now I have another one to do.
I can’t believe it’s so near Christmas. I rather lost count of the days and inadvertently cooked enough lunches for 4 days yesterday. I suppose that includes Christmas day.
Was going to have roasted vegetables for Christmas lunch, but couldn’t be bothered to buy any vegetables yesterday, so then it was going to be a toss up between a baked potato and tuna or fish fingers and Mexican Salsa sauce. Now it seems lunch is already in the fridge………
If I wanted to I could make something very interesting as I have lots of ingredients , but I probably won’t.
In the meantime I am enjoying being warm, having candles and twinkly lights.
Now I think it’s wine time and I need to decide whether to eat before I go out……..
