Two good things

Firstly I finally got my grubby mitts on my latest painting purchase - Laninya by Bec Winnel.

Bec and I have been mates for years so I managed to call dibbs on this piece while it was still a work in progress (I knew if she made it to the gallery unsold, I'd miss out!).

The final piece looks absolutely stunning. She's sitting above our computer desk, and Bill and I frequently find ourselves just leaning back in our chairs to stare at her. Thanks Bec!

Secondly, after spending a lovely afternoon with Bec (and Olive) and the girls from Just Another Agency, Toby and Melika I came away completely inspired and raring to draw.

Better yet, it doesn't seem like it's just a once off. I've dragged out the paints and inks and pencils and have a few other pieces on the go.

I'm thinking (for the near future at least), I'll just concentrate on drawing and painting and not sell anything. I think it was the pressure of having art as a second career that killed it for me. And I'm already overcommitted with career number 1.

Anyway, we'll see how this goes. Cross your fingers for me folks.
