Nearly there :)

Last night Sylvain came over and we put all of our pictures together to see the work produced during the year. It was brilliant to look back over them and finally to see how they all fit together. I was looking to do a portrait page for December with all the Hardings and farm staff to give a nice community feel but in the end had to admit that portraiture is HARD and not my forte! So instead, Sylvain and I designed a December page together around a Christmass Mandala theme... Ta da, so here some snippets for you and if all goes according to plan, The calendar will be complete by Sunday evening! Will see you all then!

Higgeldy Jig!

So things have gone a little giggly round the edges, the exhibition will take place at some time early next year but we are sticking to the original dead line for pictures being completed. This means that here is the latest offering of, yes, at last! Cows. I'm thinking they'd make fabulous wall paper if anybody knows how... Then I have two more to finish and Sylvain assures me that she is good to go with three more, all by next Wednesday. We are aiming for scanning on Friday and Calendar ready for print by Sunday! Shew. If anyone is interested in pre-orders, please let me know so we can fluff about numbers and see what needs to be doing :)

Saturday 27th October 2012

Rainbows stretching across the sky, green fields, good company and bitingly cold winds. You can feel that winter is upon us with the icy chill too icy to make stopping in a soggy field to sketch seem appealing, so instead we walked and soaked up the sights. The landscape at Court Lodge Farm has become familiar and it is like visiting a friend for tea, drinking the wildlife and sipping the trees while dunking feet in the fields delectibly. After an hour or so in the fields and with rainbows at the tips of our fingers we sheltered in the pub and at last did some little bit of sketching, this time portraits before joining the Hardings and Rea for an attempted bonfire thwarted by the wetness of the wood. After this, tired and drunk on country we headed Brighton side with me and my head nod nod nodding to the ebb and flow of A road traffic.
Due to unforseeable circumstances we are postponing the exhibition until the new year. The calendar will go ahead with production and be available by the end of November and I will be sure to post notifications as soon as I know more.
