Christmas was a nice combination of busy time with friends and family, combined with down time and lots of sleep ins. I think we will find it hard adjusting to getting up early (in the dark) and the usual routine of things but we'll get there.
Of course, painting doesn't stop and I just wanted to show you my first of 2014. It is entitled House on the hill... It will be in my etsy shop shortly.
I worked on this painting on New Year's Eve for most of the day and early evening and then again on New Year's Day in the morning before hubby and I took some time to be together in the afternoon.
I love the bright colours but at the same time it has a peaceful, mellow feel to it. Rolling fields are always very much in my mind living here in North Yorkshire (UK). My son often comments that they look like God has stretched out a patchwork blanket across the landscape and it really does feel like that.
Wishing you a happy and healthy 2014.
