Hello and welcome to Saturday evening!
A couple of posts ago I mentioned the first ever abstract I had completed for my lovely sister-in-law (SIL). Well, yesterday we had the chance to go down Bredbo way for a visit and for the first chance to see the painting at home.
Whilst it isn't hanging up yet the first thing that struck me was how small the painting seemed at her place: now, no question, my studio is tiny by anyone's standards, but I love it as it is all mine and I have never had such a glorious space for my art before. In my studio, the length of the panels on end reached from the base of my stand, to the top of my ceiling: side by side, they took up the length of my "painting wall". Perhaps this will give you an idea of the space in which I work. :-)
Anyway, here is a first view of it - given I was taking the photo against the window light, it was very difficult to get the colour balance correct. I can't wait to take a photo of the painting hanging above the glorious fireplace: SIL assures me it is perfect for the space (phew!!!!)
While we were stopping at the shops on the way to Bredbo I saw these devine roses! I have no idea what they are, but they were the most unusual colour I have ever seen; dusky mauve with a beige base! If anyone has any idea what these are called, I would love to know! I picked the roses up for my SIL - who doesn't love flowers for no reason!!
Have a glorious Saturday evening!
