I promise this will be the last lot of baby photos for a while. I am quilting - honest! There will be evidence soon. In the meantime here's Amelie aged 9 days.
And looking incredibly stressed on her mother's lap at 11 days!
That girl needs to learn to relax! Actually I think she's been taking lessons from my Bengal cat, Toby who also sleeps stretched out like that. Wish I could be that serene - mind you an hour in the dentist's chair this morning didn't help.
I'm planning a bit of a new direction for my next set of work. Having been inspired by Alistair Sooke's TV programmes on Roman art recently I'm going to revisit Pompeii. Not literally unfortunately although I did go there many years ago. The colours and textures of the distressed frescoes are glorious and I love the landscape and bird paintings especially. I may of course bring in the odd portrait as that will provide the link between current work on ageing and memory. The ideas are completely vague right now but I'm sure I'll find some focus once the sketchbook gets going!
I'll let you see some progress when there is any!
Bye for now - Linda
