That means the garden needs to be tended regularly otherwise one gets lost in mile high grass! And summer is when we have most of our exhibitions. So I've been painting very regularly - early in the morning when it's still nice and cool. I also have my little TV with me so I can watch that wonderful summer sport - cricket! India is here at the moment and we are into the second day of the second five-day test. Cricket is definitely a game you have to understand to love.
I have work on an exhibition at the moment and then on the 1st January there is another one, followed immediately on the 13th and then again on the 23rd. Different work for all of them!
This is one I'm putting on on the 23rd. It's of a farm hand who works out in the Elgin area, relaxing in the evening, entertaining friends.
I hope everyone had a peaceful Festive Season and may 2014 be the most wonderful year ever!
