Another commission finished

Hey there Sunday morning,  I have been excited about finishing this painting - it is for a very 'old' friend who lives in Israel, let's call her Chi.  Chi and I have been in each other's lives since we were about 3 or 4.  So we're nearly hitting the 40 years of friendship.  Although we don't see each other very often, we do keep in touch and I was so chuffed to do this painting of her and her family.   It winged its way to Israel on Thursday and I got a lovely email back that night saying:

"Sensational!!!! We love it and 'very talented' is the consensus! Thankyou very much. Laila tov" (goodnight in hebrew).  It was quite a tricky one as I knew that she wanted something on the theme of navy, they are big Dennis the Menace fans  - so I did my upmost to incorporate this into the painting.  I'm pretty chuffed with it - and I'm sure they will find the right place to hang it.

I'm getting inner cues to focus more on my art than ever before.  Have a lovely day xoxo

An Ode to the Dees

That's my Dees 
My furry baby 
She's a little Dee
A name coined
Twelve years ago
Dee meaning D
D meaning Darling
She's a Dees
A little Dees
My little darling
Always happy to just be
I love my little dees
She's the bees dees

A new Day

Welcome to 2011.  I realised this morning as I was beginning my journal pages that there is so much hope, optimism, confidence and newness of new years day, that I began to ponder - why doesn't this happen every day?  Why wait a year to feel optimistic, to sit and plan some new projects for the year.  It's very true to say that we have every opportunity to do this every day and yet I hesitate.  

Decided that I will blog more because it keeps me on my toes.  Have a peaceful (inner and outer) 2011 with happy times and confidence to start new things.

With love
