YES I AM STILL HERE!

I am taking my vitamins, drinking my OJ and eating my oranges but as yet there has been no impact on this bloody cold or whatever it is that I have.Due to Beauty being back at school ,I am getting a lot more rest but the effects as yet have not kicked in.It is embarrassing more than anything and I just hate coughing and spluttering in public.However,I do feel a lot more awake than I have in the past few weeks so perhaps things are getting better.
The weather is still wet and miserable but as I don't seem to be getting out much recently it is not too much of a problem.It gets dark too quickly after school for Beauty to go to the park just yet but her child minder comes and takes her out on a Sunday morning and if it is not raining then they walk around the lake and go for and ice cream which is good.
I started back to my art class on Monday and I spent the morning huddled in my coat and scarf shivering, the town where I go to my art class is in the Rhymney Valley and whilst not very far from where I live it is definitely colder as you go up the valley.My subject at the moment in art is portraiture and I am going to do a self portrait in the style of the Welsh Artist Evan Charlton who was associated with the British Surrealist Movement. I know that artists such as Dali and Kahlo were surrealists but some of their work is a bit too OTT for me and Evan Charlton , whilst of the Surrealistic movement , is less in your face(excuse the pun). The majority of Frida Kahlo's work was definitely not intended to be on display in private homes.

Wow. I am really impressed! Both pictures are excellent! You've been hiding your light under a bushel!

Unfortunately I have no natural talent, everything is learned technique. In my art class are 16 year olds who are absolutely brilliant and they leave me feeling very inadequate.

Even with learnt tecniques not everyone can draw. And you can certainly draw! Love the pictures!

The techniques you learned are just helping bring out your natural talent! Both the drawing of Beauty and the painting are lovely!

An Irish Blessing

(A Blessing from St. Patrick)
May the road rise to meet you,

May the wind be always at your back,

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

May the rains fall soft upon your fields,

And, until we meet again,

May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
