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
