I hope 2012 was good for you and that you had a great Christmas and New Year no matter what your religious denomination may be. After all the sentiments expressed at that time should be for all.
For all my readers who pop by regularly or now and again, thank you for your support and I hope you will continue to drop in to read my mutterings during the next year. I have a few workshops already lined up and I am back at Nature in Art as an artist in residence later in the year.. I will soon update the list of events of what has been confirmed so far.
I am still working on my Artists For Conservation profile, (it won't be live on their website until I have finished) unfortunately my progress there has been hampered by major redecorating works in the house, the usual Christmas Frenzy and the last minute commission to paint another gorilla in December. The decorating work is still ongoing, but hopefully not too far away from completion and then my artwork can get back to normal. Painting has been on hold due to excessive amounts of dust around the house due to demolition and sanding of plaster, paint and polyfilla. I will be glad when the last of the work has been done, the dust settled and eventually swept and wiped away for the last time!
In the meantime I wish you a very Happy New Year and hope that it is kind to you.
