It's been a frantic, busy Summer! And 5 months have just slipped past unnoticed.
The Art Society takes up a lot of my time these days and at this time of the year there seems to be more activity than normal. We just put our feet up from the exhibitions before Christmas, when there's another one at the end of January to prepare for. And no sooner has that finished when our first Art in the Park at Groot Constantia vineyards was upon us.
And just before the 'silly season' I was off to Cyprus via Paris! My son and daughter-in-law finally decided to get officially married in church after 13 years and 3 children. The wedding was in Cyprus because Barbara's father lives there and what a wonderful wedding and holiday it was, and being with the family and grandchildren was fantastic - Cyprus in winter is worth visiting and the people are so warm and welcoming. Paris for a day was a pleasure as well - instead of paying for a visa for a direct flight to Cyprus, I used my Schengen visa to visit the City of Lights and spend the day at the Musee D'Orsay. What a treat and totally recommended.
And of course, in between been doing some painting. I had two commissions just before Christmas and this rather good looking gentleman (done in watercolour!) was one of them!
