Well………..those 6 days that I had been longing pre Easter for have come & gone in a flurry. Sadly, no art, (& certainly no computer!) however huge progress on our home renovations, so the sacrifice is worth it. It is hard for us to get a ‘block’ of time to work on our own house, at Christmas we are always exhausted & desparately in need of our holiday, & the rest of the year seems to go in a blur as we move from one renovation project to another for our clients. So, my bathroom has the makings of a bath & shower, (the bath is installed in it’s frame & the shower base has been formed in the floor, but the tiling isn’t done yet) I have several new windows & new french doors, our back deck outside has been finished & some structural changes that we needed to do are finished. A pretty exhausting break really…… I need to go back to work to rest up!! LOL!! Dispite the chaos our house was/is in, Easter Sunday we had breakfast with the family… complete with home made hot cross buns & an easter egg hunt. The ‘grandies’ (too little to hunt eggs at this point!) were introduced to Spencer & Sophie Rabbit. Princess ‘L’ is pictured below examining Sophie’s hair ribbon!
Hardly being able to stand it any more, I ventured in to my studio last night, desparately wanting to do SOMETHING……. ANYTHING that didn’t involve hefting or ‘gofering’ (my two main roles over Easter….oh, then of course, there’s lunch maid & drink bringer!!!) So I started this etheral looking piece on canvas in black using a pre-raphelite image & rust ‘crumbs’ ……it is for a special art friend, & I have made myself an ATC with the same image (only smaller) & materials…….I will post it later tonight when all the ‘bits’ are dry.
