NUFFIN DOING ..... YET!



Nothing arty to show you here because we've been decorating ... you will have seen from the pictures of my Studio that it was yellow. Unfortunately rather a lot of pink had crept in in the past couple of years! When we moved here 3 years ago I was working from home and travelling a lot to supervise projects, and so was trying to make a feminine office - hence the warm yellow walls and pretty yellow curtains ...

Six months later I had to "retire" through ill health ... which was when the pink stuff started. To cheer myself up I bought a bright pink filofax diary to replace my sensible black work one, and gradually more and more and MORE pink crept in! Not being a fan of pink and yellow this colour scheme has gradually got on my nerves until I finally decided it had to go. Because of my muscle problem painting is quite painful for me, but with a little help (no make that a LOT of help) from my beloved, and doing it one section at a time day by day, it is now almost complete! Sneaky previews in the photos tell you something about the NEW colour scheme, and it's now brighter and lighter than before. Very soon I hope to be back in the art production line ...

Can't wait to see it Rosie :) I see a lot of white behind the pink things in your photos. Hmmmm????
I actually love yellow walls, almost my entire house is in the most lovely pale yellow, I will have to show you sometime :)

Nothing like fresh paint to give you a new lease on life! Hope you get to enjoy your new surroundings very soon!
Oh and sweet of your beloved to be such a help!
