It was April last year that I last painted. Never has so much time passed by, without me picking up my paint brushes, but for the first time since then, I now have an urge to paint again. I have been thinking about it for a couple of days, but today was different, I felt a real determination rather than just a thought.
When we had the heavy snow fall a few weeks back I went out and took some photos, this was my first step to thinking about painting subjects again.
This morning I took out my paints (which have been packed away in a cupboard) I even have a prepared board (so no excuse to delay)
There were two stay-wet palettes and this was the first one I opened! The smell was so overpowering as I lifted the lid that I ran outside, threw away the paper palette and the box and sponge are now soaking in bleach!
So I now intend to set up my easel and see what happens.
Hopefully I will have something to share with you, and it would be so encouraging to know you are interested in what I paint!
