A Moorhen & A Lesson Learned...
So I had to finish the poor thing, and it is now in my Etsy shop awaiting someone who really does want it. Maybe I am old fashioned, but I would always have the courtesy to let someone know if I didn't want an item. It seems these days it is far too easy to just not reply to an email and forget that there is someone left in the lurch who is trying to make a living. And it is RUDE! So, another lesson learned - never begin a project without an absolutely positive confirmation!
Last week I got back my painting from the framer and it is all ready to be taken up to London in a fortnight's time to the final selection of the Society of Wildlife Artist's exhibition. He has done a fantastic job on it - I'm keeping it under my hat for the time being, I don't want to count any chickens before they are hatched and I'm a tiny bit superstitious about jinxing things!
After a quiet summer, I now have three dog portraits to do - can't wait!
