Blog Break

I am heading to London at the end of the week, traveling with my sister Debbie to visit our lovely Aunties. I am not going to be painting, sketching or doing social media. I look back on all that I have done so far this year and know why my body is telling me - time for a holiday.
I have scheduled posts to the Wash a Week Challenge blog so that I do not have the pressure of catching up when I return. I start a new watercolour course on May 19 and have all that prepped too as I know I will have some jet lag after the long haul flight home (26 hours).
Whilst I am not going to be physically painting on my holiday I am looking forward to catching up for chatting with Laura Moore who was one of the very first artists I met on the internet and also Vandy Massey so I can personally deliver some new little paintings I am donating for her charity project - Care for Casualties. These little 6" x 4 " works are matted and sell for just 15 pounds sterling so if any take your fancy be sure to look for them on the Running With Brushes website. They should be available sometime in the next three weeks.(and surprise, surprise, there is a cat among them, for those of you who don't know I have a big fear of cats so I don't paint them.)
Thank you so much dear blogging friends and followers of my art , having you with me on the journey of creating means so much.
Till next time, happy painting, happy living
Best regards
