Oil painting of a robin and lack of cross stitch

Dear all,

I can't believe it has been so long since my last post.

It seems I have less and less time to do things that I love ... it must be what growing up feels like.

Some may remember me mentioning that apart from cross stitch that I am also a part-time artist. A scary thought occurred to me last New Years Eve... I haven't picked up my brush in so long that I was unsure I could paint any more.

Well one of my New Year's resolutions was to start painting again. I have managed four oil paintings so far this year. Including ...

But this may be it for 2016. With time ticking by ... and there being other demands on my time. Studies ... work ...

With light fading away as winter approaches, unfortunately I was unable to pick up my sheep. I am also unsure what is wrong with my eyes ... but my perfect vision seems less perfect as time goes on. I went to theatre recently, and I was in the first half of the hall and the actors were all blurry. And don't start me on any training sessions we have at work (I am unable to see what it says on the screen!) This is the same problem I am having with small count. I just can't seem to see the holes clearly enough.

Until soon (hopefully with some cross stitch),
