The New Year 2012

Where did last year go to?????? Is it a sign of getting old. Yes, I hear you say. OH NO!!!!!! Our New Year ended with a fizzle rather than a bang. Meaning both myself and my husband fell asleep in our chairs next to a roaring fire (well it was when we went to sleep).Then all of a sudden I was awakened by lots of noise from the television and bells chiming in the Plaza Mayor in Madrid. Oh No! we should be downing 12 lucky grapes this we haven't missed since we have lived here which is over 20 years. So then it was a race to try and gobble them down before the clock stopped chiming. No, we didn't make it. So no good luck for us this year!!!!!! and the Cava is still chilling in the fridge. Didn't feel like it after stuffing down 12 grapes very quickly.........

The lessons from Strathmore are up and running. I honestly couldn't be more out of my comfort zone if I tried. Still they say things like this are character building. Not if you hear the swearing coming from my house it's not!!!!!!!

These are from the first lesson with Traci Bautista. I am finding it so hard to just let go. But, hopefully it will free up my art work. Fingers crossed

This from the first piece of work that I did on a very large sheet of watercolour paper of which got chopped up into smaller pieces to work with. Not only that I wasn't pleased with it!!!!!!!

Well, I will leave you with a little quote that is quite apt as I am on a diet!!!!!!!!  DIETING IS JUST WISHFUL SHRINKING.
