Art Diary: Week Ending 27th December


I planned to go out into the garden but went out with my wife instead (Christmas shopping and a meal). I worked on the computer on my return home so the garden is looking progressively more unkept and the plants in the greenhouses progressively more unloved.

Odd jobs in the morning (mostly involving water!) and then writing and a little computer painting in the afternoon. I probably wont continue my diaries into the new year as it leaves me no time for other writing and also writing every day of every week (or at least trying to) is at best a little onerous and can prove very problematic if something else crops up like a two month long illness!

Not a brilliantly productive day although I did spent quite a bit of it painting on the computer.

I was out most of the morning and then spent the afternoon writing Christmas messages. Not much creative work done.



Obviously a family day today although I did do quite a bit of painting on one of my tablets when the rest of the family were watching inane programs on the television.



We were supposed to go out for another day with the family but my wife was ill so we had to stay home. I did a bit of writing and digital painting.

Too cold for gardening, although I did a bit, so spent much of my time working on the computers.

As an unconnected aside I may have a found a false black widow spider indoors; I picked it up and put it in my studio as I wasn’t sure how aggressive they where at the time (apparently they are not aggressive at all) so wasn’t sure if I would have made it to one of the greenhouses without getting bitten. Obviously killing it was not an option.
