Happy New Year

Happy New Year!

Wishing everyone a peaceful 2015. 
I've been enjoying time off work to mess about with some lino printing. As one of my Christmas presents, I've been booked on to a day's course in Sheffield to find out more about this technique which I love but have yet to really get the hang of. I am very excited for February when I'll be taking part.
I love the break between Christmas and New Year when there is usually time to do some painting and drawing. I've been reading some of my inspirational art books too. I love these two.

Generally, things have been quite low key around here, as my father in law is very ill. But we've seen family and friends and that has been lovely.

This chair is a recent acquisition which I'm planning to re-cover in the New Year. I loved the carved back, and it is also very comfortable.

More of my scribbles. 

See you in 2015 when I hope to be back here on a more regular basis.
