A sun

COLOUR
I have started a new project.
Note the materials neatly laid out.
The start of a project is the only time materials are neatly laid out
It has been prompted by being selected as an "artist" to work on the local Art Lift project. This is a very exciting new start for me.
Artist being in quotes as I am still learning to call myself an artist!I have decided to base the work around images of the Sun.
Something I have been wanting to do for a long time. I have also returned to stitched textile collage rather than the white, white, white that I have been doing recently!

As I sat down to paint the cloths, the 5 year old ( soon to be 6) decided he wanted to paint a sun on cloth as well.

This is his.

I love the way kids just get on with it.

I wish I could take that approach with housework.

It turned out I wasnt the only one to get that niggley "be somewhere else" feeling so Ruth and I have hatched a plan... Amalfi Coast... dont tell the kids... meet at the airport...

but we just cant decide Villa or Spa Hotel.......

And well don you.
Can I come too? 'Somewhere else' is always appealing - I can do villa or spa!!
