As you can see I wasn't put off by yesterdays events. I need to firstly thank(feel like the start of an oscars speech!) Abigail for the link on her post today, you big star you! , lots of you lovelies have now found me and thank you all for your welcoming comments. I am going to start this week talking about my work, if you can bear that! Then next week I will start to talk about my inspirations. I will also share with you my news that today I had tea with a vicar and have booked a date for my wedding next year, whoop whoop whoopeee!!! So if you can stand it i might share snippets of that with you too occasionally. Today I started a new collection of work for a new gallery in Devon called Baxters. It is a fresh,contemporary gallery full of beautiful pieces so I am very honoured to be asked to do some pieces for them. I am about halfway through a painting and its not going too well today. My head is up my **** thinking of marquees, flowers etc, but straight back to the easel first thing tomorrow. My day normally starts at about 10 after checking emails etc and I paint pretty solidly for about 8 hours. It's not something I can pick up and leave I have to put my whole soul into it and really become part of the painting. Mainly I am dreaming of living in one of those little houses or beach huts. Blogger has been doing maintenance for the last hour and I had allsorts planned but I will have to save it more tomorrow as it is getting late. Check back tomorrow for a tour of my studio. that will be fun
Bye for now!

Ooo - so exciting you have the date set! whoopee indeed! ;)

I think our days just about mirror each other...9.30 to 10.00 is the perfect start time for me too. The creative juices are flowing by then after a few cups of assam tea!! xx
