Finished in plenty of time

I'm very aware that most of the posts here lately have been knitting related and perhaps a little boring. I have been working very hard over the past few weeks but haven't felt I could really show the finished artworks as they are for publication elsewhere. However, as the above needs a little tinkering before it goes off to be made official, I thought it could have an airing. This is one of eight calendar designs I have completed over the past month or so....only 16 more to go!

I was terrified at the prospect of taking on so much work - never been so busy painting before - but (touch wood) it seems to be working out OK. The house is reasonably clean, dogs are walked, the day job is attended, and although I'm wandering round in a bit of a fog everything that needs to get done seems to get done. So what if there are a few cobwebs in the corners or dust on the picture frames!

One more potato picture to paint and then I can actually take it easy for a day or so before starting all over again.

Don't know Cat - I got the commission through an agent, so not to sure of the company, I only know it is one of the 'cheaper' lot - look out for me in your local pound store next Christmas!!
