You can tell that I am settling well in my new studio, as its starting to look messy. I have found myself working all the time at the breakfast bar. It's funny as I thought I would work at the tables, but its much easier to perch on a stool as I am up and down all the time.
And I finally managed to get some painting done, this is as far as I got but its a start at least.
'Can you tell what it is yet'
Visitor numbers are getting a bit better, but I found when my students were in, people wont walk through the door. So I put up a new sign in my window. It seems to be working as when I had students in on Wednesday we had a few people still pop in, so I pleased with it.
On Wednesday eveningI walked out to go and see Pat the clock repairer and when I came back there were about 20 partridges walking up by my studio. As they saw me coming they dived round the corner to hide, but as I walked round they all turned and stared at me, it was the funniest thing, they looked shocked that someone found them as they were hiding so well, it would make a great picture, if only I had had my camera. Of course they all then panicked a flew off in a flurry.
They flew up by these wonderful trees that are at the back of my studio. I took the photos and I think I may paint them sometime.
I had visited Pat as he said he had something for me. He has a motorbike and sometimes can't collect things so I am always happy to run him places to collect items he can't get on his bike. A couple of weeks ago he bought a gas heater and a microwave from ebay for his studio and I collected them for him. It wasn't a problem as they weren't far from my house. But he was very grateful and so has given me this Teasmade. I love it, I have been admiring them for sometime and he kindly gave me this Pink one.
I think it looks great in my studio. It does work so sometime I will use it but at the moment I just love admiring it.
