Thank you 2013, Hello 2014

On Christmas Day I planned a little activity while others enjoyed the traditional post-feast nap ( I’m not a napper!)


Angus helped me with my plan before the big day by moving my subjects into position and getting paint ready. If you follow me on Facebook you may be aware of our turquoise discussions and the naming of this particular incarnation of chalky turquoise as ‘Bali Blue’.

So when the mood hit, all I had to do was go downstairs, stir the tin ( not drink the delicious colour) and PAINT. Tinsel was my cute-but-not-so-helpful assistant.
