Work, rest and play

Have been really lazy this past week and simply haven't put the hours in that I need to which means playing catch-up for the next week or two. My reason? .... the need to socialise. I love being an artist and doing what I do but there is no getting away from the fact that it can feel quite isolated and lonely stuck behind an easel all day with no-one to talk to (there are many benefits to this also I might add).

So had a great time doing lunch, shopping, talking and visiting. My best friend from school was over from Australia (hi Michelle), having emigrated there just under three years ago, so it was great to catch up with her - talking on the phone just isn't the same. I even had a proper night out, my first in a looooong time.

It wasn't all fun and play though - I did get some work done including this Jack Russell called Archie, my latest commission.

Changing the subject slightly, the closing date for giving a title to my 'Horse on Film' is this Saturday so any suggestions you might have are still gratefully received. A couple of people have chosen to email me personally via my website with their suggestions which is great if you prefer to do it this way. Either way let me have them.

Thanks Victoria:) I love to try new supports but always come back to Fabriano - just haven't found anything to beat it in my opinion.
