A Year in Art Lockdown

My last update was regrettably a whole year ago. Apart from living through the Covid pandemic, (unscathed so far and now vaccinated!) a lot has happened to me personally this year to take my mind off painting.

In my family and among my children, there have been two weddings, the birth of a baby boy and an ongoing pregnancy, due in May! So getting down to painting watercolours has had to be low on my priority list.

So it has been a time of great joy but also of underlying anxiety. And like many artists I guess, I have to be upbeat before I feel like painting.

But now times are improving and with Spring well and truly here and lovely colour and life appearing in the garden, I’ve been painting again. Hurrah!

The hellebores are catching my eye right now and this is my favourite one in my garden catching the sun one early Spring day.
