An artist by any other name.

A lovely walk along the beach today, dare I say Spring could be on it's way?  Best not.
The kitchen cupboards are all looking a lot cleaner and emptier after a mammoth chuck out....just the appliances to go now and then the larder.   I'm just doing a bit each day in-between other jobs.  Mind you today I have my rope and crampons out and at the ready.....can you tell what I'm going to be doing soon? Boo!

Today I am sharing a bespoke order for an artist who will soon be 70. This chap enjoys painting watercolour land and seascapes so this is what I came up with.

Lots to crack on with today, I will share more later!
I hope you have a great Thursday.  x

Erika this is fantastic, clever you useing buttons as paints- just love it. Oh dear iron mountain again, but it's does do that you get to the button then it's back a mountain again, my Tammy takes in ironing, (she loves ironing) I like doing it to just as well with having works to do as well as ours. We must be mad I know! Glad you are getting round those cupboards. Hazel xx
