We went to London on Sunday, I just could not wait to go up and down some escalator. I'm not sure why maybe because we live in the country and there are not any even in the nearby towns. I also saw the slides at the Tate Modern but I did not get to go down you have to book timed tickets and the queue was very long. K left me in the book department in Selfridges. It was so packed I thought I would never be able to find him again. He surprised me by coming back with this rose. Not sure the paint glass does it justice.
This picture is called 'bicycle made for two'that I'm trying to paint at the moment. I brought a new paint box on Sunday. My lovely old one which was my grandma's has been everywhere with us from Scotland to Italy to South America. So I'm looking forward to using a much smaller one that fits in a handbag easily. I only ever use 4 or 5 colours so I don't need to be lugging that around. My trusty old one will still get used I will carry on taking to my children's art lessons. In the picture is the brush case my dad gave me years ago he took out all his compasses and technical drawing stuff and its perfect for most brushes.
