I almost exploded.

I was down the Shedudio and had just made myself step back and stop.


You have to go away and come back another day.


Then you decide - leave or tweak.  So easy to ruin a painting.  Over working. Aye.

Came back into the house and there in the kitchen was one of the DPs bird watching friends  -having a coffee.  

Deep breath, (which was a stupid thing to do), I said, "You should be outside."  And went back out myself.  I was furious.  There is a limit to being welcoming when you have good reason.  For example, 'Jill is shielding til the end of the month.'

Yes I can meet up to 15 people -  should I want - OUTSIDE.

The door handles et al have been sanitised......


To calm down - to the Prom.




A painting!  Marooned!


A dog came.  All flew away.



Mackerel fishing boats.


Back home a Juvenile Great Spotted Woodpecker came to call.



Yellow Loosestrife and Ladies Mantle blooming outside the Shedudio.

Calmed down now.

A step back is sometimes necessary to get proper perspective,, sometimes we just need a rest and look at it with new eyes,, I wish I could get a pair of new eyes lol,,Just popping in to say hi,, I can’t see your photos but I have all the photos of yours from days gone by held safely in my memory,, I know they’re all beautiful today,

Your painting is beautiful.

People just do not use the brains God gave them at times.

God bless.

I just looked at some of your art work from the very beginning of your blog and I have a strong feeling that it has just gotten better and better....

So sorry about this foolish person in your house.

Loved the photo of the marooned birds that would make a great painting.

We can all do daft things without thinking (I have not even the good grace to share with you the TRULY stupid thing I did yesterday!) Hopefully it will come to nowt but I daresay a lesson has been learned . . .

Look forward to the "Marooned" painting . . .

I am relieved to discover you didn't actually explode.
