Thanks to Sarah for helping me post this. Now, does anyone have a better name for it?
Is this what it feels like?
Since the winter of 1993, a few months after I started antibiotics, I have been assiduous in making my own seasonal cards, with one of my own paintings or drawings on the front. In previous years it might have been rather a bore but now it is something that I feel I have to do partly in order to show that I'm am still alive ad kicking and not reduced to making scrappy little mouth and foot designs which I never would have been happy doing.
In 2003 I completed six large oil paintings for the Queen Mary 2 cruise ship. These were the last paintings I did before I found myself unable to paint at all. Two were of arums caught up in a storm and Cunard were unhappy with them, thinking that they would upset the people staying in the penthouse suites. I suppose they had a point! I replaced the clouds with trees.
This is a watercolour study for a new oil painting I am working on, bigger and better than the original, storm clouds reinstated..............Sarah
