Down in the Summerhouse

Now that the summerhouse is finished, that's where I paint. Its a lovely spot, sheltered from the wind, but lots of natural daylight and very warm, thanks to the fact that hubby insulated walls and floors.

Once the doors are open, Missy comes down the garden with me and watches me intently for a while - just in case I should feel the need to play basket ball with her.

Once my kit is spread out and ready, I do play ball with her - afterwards she settles down nicely.

Regardless of what I paint and how well it goes - its a lovely way to spend a few hours.

Wherever you create, I hope you get just as much pleasure from your space!

Tomorrow I will show you the painting that was created on this sunny day .


  1. Hi Missy, that sure looks a nice place to take a rest.
    See Yea George xxx

  2. It is a nice spot, George :)
    I trained mummy to put a comfy bed in there, but when its very sunny, I prefer to sleep on the cool floor!

  3. How wonderful! To paint in a place called, "The Summer House". I would be inspired just sitting there! Can't wait to see what you paint next!

  4. Thanks, Katherine. xx
