Hello? Is there anybody there?

I feel as though I am walking into a room without a clue as to whether anyone will be in it or not.
Its' been so long since I wrote on my blog and I'm wondering if anyone is still here to read my posts! I am so sorry. 
I had an email from a blog reader recently asking where I was. I am here, just not finding time to write here lately. Not for any other reason than that I am really hectic with my offline life.

I could blame our two new puppies for taking up a lot of my time because they do. My daily routine now consists of daily long walks to tire them plus a training schedule. You will be pleased to hear that I am now almost fully trained to their way of thinking. Although seriously they are beautiful boys, great fun to be with and they are at this young age, quite naturally, time consuming.

But back to my art. I am working on a project that hopefully will be released next year and if possible announced before Christmas. It involves filming and that is the main reason I am quiet. I hope you will love the news when I can finally share the secret in a big reveal!

I have been in an exhibition in London too plus I demonstrated at an authors day at the Mall Galleries again in London ,via my publisher. Thank you to everyone who came to see me because it was such a great day. And a bargain. Visitors could see a number of artists working for a very low entrance fee although it seemed everyone who came to see me stayed with me for the whole day and I managed to practically pull off a workshop experience almost, with three different presentations throughout the event. I may return next year so do watch this space!

But I am back now, settled in my studio and painting, loving that feeling of seeing colour flow across paper.

Its' autumn and the autumn colours are as always thrilling me.

I hope to share more regularly now.

Dorothy, a special hello to you and thank you for your email about my being missing from my blog which shook me back into typing here!

Huge hugs to everyone and happy painting!

I, for one, am pleased that you are reviving your blog.

I have two of your books and one of your online video classes. Can’t paint like you do, but I enjoy trying to use color the way you do.

Its funny you should post this because I visited your blog and was sad to see it had been a while. I am glad I get to follow you on other social media.

I love seeing your puppies and I was wishing I could have seen your London exhibition but it wasnt meant to be this time.

I cant wait to hear your news about what is happening with you and your fabulous art. I love your art, it makes me feel happy.

Good luck with everything, Jean. 💟

Hi Jean, I'm here! I love reading about what you are doing, as the workshop I did with you was such a great inspiration for me. I know you are so busy, and now you have the pups.....but just throw us blog readers a treat every so often and we will be happy!
