Great news my painting Wonder Water Image #3
has sold in New York (see the image below).
My wonderful friend, a novelist who has just
published a novel called Sidekick that you can
purchase here, posed for me, and I am delighted.
All in all I've done four paintings of her in the
past year, and I love them all.

SOLD ♥  
More progress on the breakfast painting, Untitled
as yet.  It was a very busy, and very happy weekend
and Monday so progress has been slow. Perhaps
tomorrow I will tell you about the vision I had
meditating while my husband had acupuncture
early, early Saturday morning.  I might have been
close to a sleeping state, to start with, but whatever
the case, I find my vivid imagination to be a treat
in those moments.

Have a dreaming-yourself-a-wonderful-life day.

Hi Wendy,

Thank you very much. I went to see a show of Francis Bacon, and Henry Moore today. Wonderful, but I left feeling like Pollyanna :-)
