K. started school last week. She is already enjoying it – seems to prefer it to pre-school – so that is making life much easier. No more tears, procrastination in the mornings and no more messing up her everyday clothes. Her school has a uniform – yah! – as do most schools in Australia.
With more time on my hands I have made use of the art space at my local art group and have been painting on Monday morning, Tuesday morning and evening, and I could have gone today but chores intervened. So already, in my first week of childless days I have managed more painting than I did over the whole school holiday period.
In this time, I have completed the painting called ‘Mischief’. I will post it on WetCanvas to get some final feedback, make any minor adjustments and then have it framed ready for one of the upcoming art shows.
Still not sure about the background, but I’ll wait for some feedback and see what comments come up.
Next week, the Art rooms are closed in preparation for the Local Show (19-21 Feb). I will have 3 paintings in the show, and will also be volunteering to work the Art/Pottery room for one of the days it is open. I enjoy doing that as it means I get to have a look at all the other art works and meet lots of local people.
