Christmas is hard work….. there’s always a lot to do…..
….but when it’s done, its a magical time…..
Decorating the house with light and colour, the kitchen filled with tantalising aromas, interesting packages to give and receive in return. But sometimes the gifts aren’t the ones you’re expecting. I’ve received three gifts this week which have given me a lot of pleasure…. one was the go ahead for a very interesting commission, one which I shall enjoy doing in the new year, one was the totally unexpected but very welcome gift of sweet biscuits from a previous buyer of my artwork from a land across the seas, and one was a delightfully long letter from the 72 year old chap who I drew the other week who wanted me to know how much he had enjoyed the experience, and since he writes a column in a local paper wanted to know if I’d be happy with him writing about the experience of my drawing him, and yes I’m very happy at that thought….
So…. lovely gifts already. Of art, and the kind words and deeds that have come back in return………..
So I’ll take this opportunity to say – may the seasons spirit bring you love, joy, inspiration and prosperity. Happy Christmas!
