I was painting in my studio on Christmas Eve, then disaster.... ran out of paint in the colour I needed, so had to down tools! But I was back at work in the first week of January 2013 with a fresh supply of paint from the shop and with spring flowers to chase away the winter blues.
The second week of January has not been so exciting with accounts to be completed before the end of the month. I'm in the middle of two big new paintings (60 x 60in), so can only wait till I have a chance to focus on my practice again once the number crunching is complete. Hopefully next week I will be able to pick up where I left off, doing what I do best - painting.
