working outside yesterday - sat in the shade, making marks with oil pastels - I have not worked with oil pastels for a few months so it was good to get them out again. I prefer to work outside when I can.
Hello, it's another warm and sunny July day. Thanks to everyone who visited my shop last week and purchased artwork, very much appreciated. It was a pleasure to put together packages and send to near and far. One of my most favourite things to do is put packages together and I hope you enjoy all the artworks received.
One of my least favourite things is paperwork - but that's what I am doing for some of my time this week. I have to do it and of course it is all part of being a self-employed person etc... but paperwork involving lists of numbers is ugh, anxiety and headache but eventually it all makes sense. I check and re-check all my sums but when it is done - yay! To balance the paperwork out I make time each day to work in my sketchbooks and make a start on new artworks.
My garden is starting to bloom and there are tomatoes just forming on plants. I'm hoping to share another gardening post some time soon and hope this might interest you.
I will share a post of sketchbook posts later this week - until then, take care and more soon.
