Hello, another December Monday comes around - and a mild start to the week here. (Parts of the UK have suffered terrible weather over the past few days, with record-level rainfall and flooding - thinking of all the people affected). A little dampness and murkiness at the start of the day here, but really nothing at all to complain about. I doesn't feel like winter, but it is another one of those days that could be October, March, or December. However, my festive mood persists and this week's mosaic gives a little hint toward sparkle, a celebration of light and texture. Thanks always to the artists and photographers featured. Please do follow links, if you have a moment, and discover more.
This week is a special one - as always I can't quite believe it but here I am about to update my shop for the last time - this year. I'll be updating my shop this Wednesday at 2pm. Thanks always for taking a look and many thanks to everyone who has purchased recently, so very much appreciated. Just a reminder: I am not reserving artwork during December.
I hope to give a little preview of new artworks tomorrow, if time allows. I really want to offer a lovely selection of special pieces, and hope you may enjoy seeing.
Beyond this week: I will be working in my sketchbooks and beginning to quietly make new work over the holidays, considering a few personal projects. I'm also giving myself some time off to spend with family. Just a day or two, but I am looking forward to it. This year has gone by so quickly as my family and I have been especially busy, working hard - it's really been a year of making progress and taking new steps for all of us.
Have a good start to your week.
