Fox in snow
Photograph taken in my garden last year
It has been an amazing week.This morning I spent time in my studio quietly working. As I looked through my window, at the frost outside, I saw the most beautiful fox. It stopped and gazed at me for a moment before continuing its' walk around our garden. It then returned to my studio and sat outside, almost asking to come in out of the cold. This ,naturally, had to be the one and only morning I had left my camera in my cottage! All I could do was sit and admire it. Its' colouring was magnificent and its eyes really shone in the early morning light. Now I have a painting in my mind which I hope to capture when I have time.
However, time is precious for me this month with so much planning ahead for neaxt years workshops and exhibitions. I will be travelling to Australia in April 2013 and may possibly be giving a workshop in Hong Kong on my return to Europe. I have trips to Morocco and Spain planned and I will be holding workshops again in Texas and New York in Autumn. My 2013 UK workshops are fully booked and as I am hoping to start writing again, the time I have free will be spent on a new project and my exhibiton collections.
I have given several magazine interviews which will be published next year and I will share more news in other posts. For now I am enjoying the last month of December with the joy of a new trip approaching which is research for my next years subjects.
My life is never boring but today, as it is Sunday I am going to take a well earned break to enjoy this incredible scenery while I can!
My morning walk today, isn't the beauty of nature incredible?
I would like to add a huge thank you to artists taking part in my robin challenge to raise fundss for Cancer Charities. I have been inundated with emails and I didn't expect such a huge response. Thank you so much! I hope to share more soon!
