Flaming June...

Did you ever have one of those months where everything just seems to go wrong?  Not in a huge way, but annoying niggles on a daily basis.  That's what I'm having at the moment and it is getting very tiresome!  However, one thing that isn't going wrong (thank goodness!) is this painting.  I've had ample opportunity this week to get on with it, despite the niggles, and have been concentrating on the horse.  As I am using a size 0 brush most of the time, it is a slow process, but I am happy with how it's going.  Painting bridles is far more difficult than any animal though!
I've also been doing plenty of knitting and sewing, some for the animation and some for the dog show next month.  This little chap is waiting for his bowl and bone.
I went to an unusual plant fair at the weekend but was hampered by forgetting to bring much ready cash - see, annoying!  However, I did have enough pennies to buy this magnificent specimen - it's called a 'pineapple flower' for obvious reasons.  It does have a proper name but that's on the tag which is currently outside, and much as I love you, I'm not going out there right now!

You have been a busy little bee. Love the plant. Very cool and the painting is looking great too. xoxo
