partly because it has been such a glorious sunny Sunday
that we spent it out and about rather than at home in the studio
which has made me a bit short on time and brain power
so this ink and watercolour piece will fill both roles this week...
It was just too nice to spend the day in the studio
because finally winter has moved from grey, wet and miserable
to our normal glorious sun filled warm weather
which is just as well
because we are just home from
a humongous family reunion type picnic
filled with people I have no recollection of
all of which are somehow related to us
you couldn't move without falling over a cousin, aunt, uncle,
or great aunts and uncles
there were even a few great greats...
It was the Guess Who game of the Fletcher clan
Have you seen whats his name ?
No which one is that?
He is the second son of the one in the green shirt
Was he wearing a hat?
No but he had glasses?
after 20 minutes I gave up any attempt to keep everyone straight
and just smiled and tried to not look too confused
but the weather was stunning and Hawaiian type shirts abounded
and while we are on the whole Hawaiian loud floral type shirt thing
it remains one of life's great mysteries to me as to why
the minute a bloke hits 50
they seem to think this is suddenly fashionable????
but on the plus side
the eye popping sea of colour inspired
my Strawberry Lemonade Punch piece
for the Summer Of Ice Cream Colours
and while I acknowledge there was no blue in the prompt
I am including the glorious Winter sky from today
which was perfect
because I kind of wanted another pattern to go along with the
fruit salad one I did earlier
because the print of it
worked so perfectly as a pendant
and I kind of wanted another one
so I am off to make a Strawberry Lemonade Punch pendant
happy weekend all...xx
