Wow, that was a long break from my dailies and blog. Excuse the prolonged absence but believe me, I’ve been painting up a storm. Today I was at Coton Manor, trying to get in a cheeky January since all my recent attempts to get there in January had been thwarted by windy weather or just plain being busy. I’ll show you the outcome tomorrow. Anyway, I am on a cherry roll – trying to get some bigger work finished so I did this little one with the leftovers.
