Sam sleeping in his fleece.

Well, while Sam is in his room in time out again here’s another quick post!

I’ve been a bit slack updating this journal lately mainly because I’ve tried to step away from the computer and do something for me instead. It was driving me crazy that I was spending all my time being Sam’s mum or Bill’s wife and not taking time to do anything I wanted to do myself. Hashing is out, so, I got myself some paints and new brushes, primed up a piece of junk wooden board left over from some old DIY project and attempted my first painting using acrylics:

Sam Sleeping in his fleece
23″x24″

Not totally satisfied with it yet, but am stepping away for a bit before I overdo it in all the wrong places. Hopefully I’ll either come to like it as it is, or be able to finish properly a little later when I’m a little more distanced from it again.

Okay, off to have words with Sam and see if he’s sorry for the latest puddle. I can hear him giggling and yelling “Tubby Custard!” through the door so I doubt it.

    Beautiful!!

    OMG Kay, I didn’t know you were so talented. I just commented on your flickr page and asked who the artist was. As I pushed the send button I realized I should have checked over here first.

    Wow, this picture is really great and inspiring me to be more creative!

    I can paint!

    Kizzy,
    Have I shown you my St Ives harbour in the style of Alfred Wallis? It would explain where you got your talent from 🙂
