Diary of A frustrated Artist

I am drawing and painting for my own pleasure, its been so long since I had the time to do it. I am a little rusty but practice makes perfect. It is my hope to get a collection together and have something to show, who knows some one may even ask me to paint for them?
I hope so cos the cupboard looks pretty bare, such is the life of an ex student. I passed by the way with a high-class 2/1 so i am rather happy. Today by way of a small celebration I am making a summer fruit pudding with fruit picked from my lovely friend Helen garden. I shall refrain from the obligatory cream however as I have waged war on my ample fat and this time its personal!!!! watch this space.

It is still hot and sunny…really I know it’s the U.K but I am honestly not making this up. Check the news, i am still a little stunned myself, don’t want to speak to soon though as I may jinx it. I love the sunshine, its makes everything look much nicer. Even Newport looks reasonable and that is a stretch believe me.
I was going to write about the 9 hours I spent at the hospital with my pregnant daughter yesterday. I was frazzled and cross when I got home. You know what though? I wont be grumpy today as the sun has helped me chill. Tomorrow i will be finishing my space for the exhibition and actually hanging my paintings. I must confess i am a little nervous, I have no back up ! what if they hate my work???
On a lighter note people I had a b.b.q with my family today in the garden in the sun, it was bliss and my boy Blue got a share of all the meats bones. I am posting his mug shot so you can see how beautiful he is.
