It’s hard to get any painting done at the moment. My easel is set up among all the junk in the conservatory, and it’s not quite a salon at the best of times, but just now it’s just too cold and dark to paint out there. I can clear the table and work indoors, which is warmer, but then there’s sod-all natural light and I’m in everyone’s way. Plus paint gets on the furniture.
I’ve mostly been trying to organise stuff for the summer instead, but that’s just paying out money and filling in forms. There are about eight thousand photos to sort through. But I just want to get back out there with the kids’ plastic tat no one can bear to throw away, and get on with it.
