The holidays are over and we're back to normal working this week.
Sometimes life gets so busy, its hard to find time for painting, so I made a conscious effort to spend some time with my brushes last week. I was painting only for fifteen minutes at a time, enough to make a difference to a piece of paper, not so much that I felt I was neglecting other things.
This is the painting that resulted.It was inspired by a painting in one of my numerous art books.
Fifteen Minutes of Peace
and here, in stages, you can see how each 15 minutes built up to the finished work.
I wish you all a wonderful new year, with time enough to paint!
