The Retreat - I imagine is a place with no internet, telly or phones, a place where nobody quite knows where one is. Fully stocked with painting materials, books, music, food and a lovely bottle of single malt. Where one can hear the world sigh at night and breathe fresh clean air.
Here are the other 7 paintings from this series so far,:
HAT STATUS: I am now the proud owner of the most beautiful green cashmere hat - thank you V, it is the colour of Spring!
READING STATUS: Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte - in preparation for a 'read-along' with @aeroplanegirl - Jen Campbell - check out her twitter feed for details, anyone can join in. Gah! to that Rochester bloke.
WRITING STATUS: Delighted to have a piece of writing I wrote at a workshop last year included in the #WriteCity booklet of writing from our city library. Very excited to have a piece of writing- 'Artefact' in the inaugural issue of Ink In Thirds - a new online magazine.
PAINTING STATUS: Spent all my birthday money on paint!
WILDCARD STATUS: Go enter my give-away draw and I might send you some - ok, they aren't really that wild, but cards nonetheless!
