Into week 4 of the kitchen re-fit. Yesterday, the decorator had painted as much as he could paint by lunchtime, so went off somewhere else. I think it’s the first time I’d had the house to myself since the project began. Reader, I escaped to the shops. And returned with flowers to paint.
I started on these beautiful deep pink lilies and was about to take a break to eat at around 8 pm, when suddenly the power went off. No microwave meal for us, so we went to a nearby pub and had a delicious meal. We got back around 10.30 pm, and like a magnet, the unfinished painting pulled me back up to the loft room. I can’t remember what time I finished, but I know I couldn’t wake up this morning …
I tried painting larger scale again, and managed to squash this picture into the scanner (just).
Gladioli and freesias to follow in the next few days.
