Me in my happy place

Me in my happy place

As usual, I moaned and grumbled that I hate Christmas. I got the feeling that my kids and husband didn’t take my Scrooge routine very seriously though. My daughter even pointed out that, for someone who claims to hate it, I mentioned Christmas many, many times in the days leading up to it. Have to admit too that, apart from the first six days of the holiday spent doing my accounts (am allergic to maths), I’ve had a lovely time. My thanks to my husband and daughter for filling my belly with delicious festive meals and to my son for driving all the way home from Leeds to help me eat them.

Dirty Palettes

Standard

Great sadness arrived in a box from my artists materials suppliers the other day: New palettes. For the past 6 years, I’ve been trading under the username “dirty_palettes” on eBay because, in all that time, I have never once cleaned them. But, dog hairs embedded in the thick layers upon layers of dried paint around their edges and a fair share of dust had begun to hinder my progress. As I can’t bring myself to throw them away, the palettes are to be hung on my studio wall, complete with dried paint, dog hair and dust, as a very happy memory.
