With Sandi's 50th birthday celebrations out of the way I hope to ease myself back into painting mode again soon. We enjoyed having interstate visitors to help us mark the occasion, but it's meant that my painting has taken a back seat for the duration of their stay. An added distraction has been a woodworking project I attempted to complete for a friend from Melbourne to coincide with his visit. I put the brushes down a couple of weeks ago in an effort to meet that self-imposed deadline but was unsuccessful anyway as it turned out.
I hope I can finish this one soon; it seems there's a finite amount of inspiration to draw on when a painting takes as long as this one has!
