New painting and some news!

Good morning all.

I'm so glad you all liked The Starlight Express :)
This painting was inspired from the same book. 
The train used to approach via the Pleiades, a constellation more commonly known as the Seven Sisters. I decided to make my Seven Sisters more abstract and colourful - I hope you enjoy them too.

The Seven Sisters



In other News, 
we are carrying on with the works in our house.
We have removed some of the brickwork, the old carpet is gone as you know, and we have just two weeks to clear everything out from the whole of the downstairs in our house, before the builders come in. 
This will be my last blog post until after the works have finished and we have everything back to normal. I should be back at the start of Sept. 
I'll leave you with the first few photos taken of the work in progress and wish you all a wonderful summer. 





See you all in Sept! xx
