The Chameleon Shed and a return to blogging

Good morning friends.

If you've stuck around while hubby and I have gone through our 'horrible year', I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
For those who have contacted us and offered support, thank you. Your help and information have been priceless and helped us navigate a minefield.
Hubby is now well on the mend and his doctor has been so pleased with his progress, that this week he has been able to return to work on a phased basis.

So, back to painting and blogging.

I created this painting after taking inspiration from one of Joanne Harris' shed tweets. In a previous post, I'd said how she posts about her writing 'Shed' and each day, it changes aspect, depending on Joanne's fertile imagination.

The quote that inspired me this time, was:

This morning the Shed is a giant trunk, covered with labels from all over the world.

And the painting I created has been called:


The Chameleon Shed


I hope you enjoy viewing it - and I hope to visit you soon.
Thanks again for your support.

    I LOVE this painting. Perfect example of what watercolors can really do, when rendered by an artist such as yourself. Beautiful, just beautiful!
