This completes the Christmas commissions for the time being - I'm free if you would like to grab me!

However, any benefits from being away from the world for a few days (and this particular weekend we were very glad to be away from the terrible events going on) were wiped out when we returned home to discover the water tank in our roof had leaked the whole weekend and the ceiling was streaming water through the smoke alarm, soaking the carpet below. Desperate phone calls to the housing association ensued and they were brilliant in sending round an electrician and a plumber within an hour or so. Nobody to sort out the saturated ceiling however, and we had to call out the electrician again as the residue water started to once again pour into our brand new smoke alarm. Now we wait to see if the insurance company will spring for a new carpet!

On the easel: still the greyhounds
On the needles: Christmas stuff!

I thoroughly enjoyed painting a different kind of dog - I seem to paint a lot of lurcher types and labradors. Nothing wrong with those, it's just nice to ring the changes occasionally. However, next up are a pair of greyhounds - the photo session for them was a nightmare, they just wouldn't keep still! Out of 40 photos taken, I managed to get 2 that are workable.
On the needles: nothing in particular - no commissions at present, so it is time to work my way through the pile of WIP's that seems to have accumulated.
