this piece is / was my favourite one from a week of painting.....The sun was shining, I felt full of energy and things just seemed to flow. But this week it is as if I have been emptied, and I am struggling with two more canvases, really labouring over them, but nothing good is happening. What a strange thing this creative urge is..............

A wonderful gift




























Something amazing came through the post for me today! An act of generosity and beauty. I am so thrilled to have got this little doll from Yoda, I can't begin to say how touched I am, and so happy :-) The details are so perfect, her clothing , her eyes.....everything...sigh :-))

Thank you Yoda, as you can see she is making friends already, and I have decided to call her Tilda. 
Yoda's flickr name, one of my favourite actresses, and a great film / book made her name so obvious to me, I hope Yoda approves .

I have been desperate to make a book, and this current project is satisfying that need but...............I have started to get too precious over it, and its feeling a bit stiff and boring.

 However, it looked so beautiful in the sunlight while I was working on it I am happy just taking photos and thinking about the next pages to work on :-)

continuing with the drawing a day of my amaryllis, it was pretty boring while it just kept growing taller, but now it has bloomed, it changes hour by hour. so much more exciting to draw, I would recommend it :-)
