Just the briefest of posts, because I am still painting for all I’m worth to get this calendar finished. When I have not been painting, we have had guests, or an exhibition on, and when there’s been no distractions, I have been painting. Hence this blog has been short on posts. However I thought I should show you the picture for April:
Huge sigh of relief, after the girly ‘September’ picture, this is one I am happy with and I like the colours. I wanted to call it ‘Poker Face’ but not one of them seems to be any good at a poker face. So I may call it simply ‘Cheating at Cards’. Fairies would definitely cheat at cards.
And talking of cheating, I have an instant painting I think I will use for January:
- Rubik’s Cube
- I know, I have one drawn out, but that was back when I expected to be doing them in pencil and gold leaf, and really, this fellow is much more fun in full colour.
- So that’s a little fraction of time saved! Just five more to go, including the paintings with 10, 11 and 12 in them! (unless of course I am foolhardy enough to try to paint September again in time… I might, but no promises…). Here is the progress on 10 fairies – the painting for October:
Right, back to work…!
