November has come and gone – not without artistic activity but it went unrecorded.
I’ve been busy having coasters made, featuring some of my paintings.
I’m a bit ambivalent about the point of coasters but having sold all my calendars I was looking for another product for our current event: Creative Christmas at Moorlinch.
So here we are, mince pies and wine at the ready, open for business!
My 2013 Christmas card arrived from the printers a couple of days ago (well, 500 of them). Good service as usual from Think Ink.
I continued my approach of taking animals and birds that you might think are white, putting them in snowy surroundings and going a bit mad with the colours.
I discovered these Kashmir goats – quite a herd of them – on the hillside of the Great Orme, near Llandudno, in the summer.
Apparently their forbears were a gift from some Indian potentate to Queen Victoria. Crazy horns -some of them cart two pairs around but they look too weird.
You can compare mine with the original. Good old artistic licence again!
