Almost back to normal…

Well it has been a while since I last posted anything here hasn’t it?  I have now been back in New Zealand for just on 6 months and things have changed.

I am back in the ‘workforce’ working full time so my art has been relegated to simply a hobby at this point in time. As I mentioned in my last post, I had sold or donated all of my art and 99% of my art supplies. I kept a set of watercolours, some brushes and a few other items that I could squeeze into my little ‘box of stuff’ but at the moment they are merely gathering dust until I can get back into the swing of things.

All going well, and having some current issues sorted out soon, I do hope to be back to at least doing the odd painting here and there by the new year.  Our current home doesn’t have a lot of spare room so I am going to have to get creative in that regard.  There is of course ‘digital art’, which I also hope to get back into eventually, but I would really love to be able to work on something ‘physical’.  I will definitely be checking out paint/art suppliers locally and via the internet in the coming weeks, even if it is just the one canvas and a limited palette!  Have to start somewhere, right?

Meanwhile, it is wonderful to be having our first Christmas back in New Zealand, with family we haven’t seen in a long time.  Of course having it in summer is an added bonus.  I for one do not miss having to shovel the driveway or wear 10 layers of clothing at this time of year.

For those of you who celebrate Christmas, have a fabulous one.  No matter what ‘holiday’ you observe over the coming month or so, have a lovely time and here is wishing everyone great things for 2017!

See you soon!
