Somehow even though we have no children to look after summer seems to have been taken up with, well, summer.
On the plus side, I have gathered so much material that in my head there are a zillion paintings all waiting to burst onto the canvas.
So here I am on the first one, a careful study of my lovely, unproductive (at the moment) greenhouse.

a small drawing to help me on the way.
This is a painting that took a lot of planning, and drawing out before I got to putting brush to support, but in a way this is easier than a quicker, spontaneous work, because most of the decisions have been made before you start painting. So I have a few days ahead, blissfully laying on scrumptious oil paint.

Pity about the domestic chores......
