I used to be good at writing blogs regularly. Was I less busy?
I like writing blogs, since it gives me a chance to look back at what I’m doing.
The truth is, that I’ve got out of the habit recently. Summer is divided between work and holidays and there is little time to do extra work.
The last blog was about “Grumpy Duck” the brilliant book written by Joyce Dunbar. Since then I’ve finished all the illustrations! Well, almost. I need to do endpapers and the cover, but I can’t wait to share some of the pictures.Here is Grumpy Duck talking to a dog.And here she is with a tortoise.Duck is getting more and more miserable and the cloud above her head is getting bigger.
Being miserable could be catching, but a bad mood won’t last forever.It wasn’t just work last month. I was in Greece for a holiday as well. If you paint in the olive orchard in Greece in the middle of summer, you have to work very fast. It is very, very hot.
The best place was to paint on this little, empty beach.It was lovely and I want to go back!
