Having said that I have flowers starting to grow in my garden. Surprisingly a Hollyhock that from the look of it will be in flower within a couple of weeks. We had huge winds over the last couple of days in the channel Islands. It has torn a strip of roof off our garden shed, also it has made the shed come apart at the apex by about an inch, so we need to get it fixed and re-roofed. Then we need to use it a bit more. We have lost the cover off the BBQ, Will need to hunt for it, it could be miles away! I am still waiting for this picture to load, hence waffling away.
When we got home I realised I have forgotten to bring home my acrylic paints... drach. This means I will have to paint using my oils and other media. I am going to see if I can put together an affordable order for gesso over the weekend and make a start on preparing some of the lefkas for icons. I have some wood.
Perhaps in 2013 I will be able to afford to go on some icon courses. I so enjoyed the two I did with Sr Esther at Turvey Abbey. I just need to be taught properly.
Actually if anyone would like to buy it for about £100 plus postage and packing, I will put up a contact me box. I could ship it during March, as It is not here in Jersey. It would be fun to sell something!
I will need to get set up on Pay Pal, and find out how to ship things, and put on here how much shipping will cost. I will get on to it next week. I will put the painting up again below propped on the little table so anyone wanting it gets a better idea of what kind of space it takes up. I suppose I could put up a whole new page of 'Art for Sale', and work out how to sell stuff I do and make. This seems a good plan... I don't have much confidence in myself to try to sell pictures through a gallery. Art is in the eye of the beholder anyway.
