There's preparations and present shopping for Christmas, extra work to be done before we're off for the holiday. For we artists too, I bet there are lots of paintings you can't show or hint at, because they are presents.
This painting is a present too. I have shown it to Nicola, in case there was anything she wanted changed because it wasn't sitting right, before I sent it to the other end of the country! Fortunately for me, she loved it.. so I can show it to you . For Nic its good too, she'll be able to have it framed for Christmas :)
