I forgot to write the Blog yesterday, partly because I forget that it was Monday but also I was so engrossed in editing my book. The mammoth task is reducing in size but when I'm finished I'll have to check everything again(and then again.)
Perhaps this shouldn't be called Isolation Artist Blog any longer as we're not so isolated now. The roads are extremely busy, the village green and beach is full of people and it's nowhere near as quiet as it was during April. I felt very sad today as the annual Exhibition of the Society of Women Artists, at the end of September each year at the Mall Galleries, London was cancelled today. This is a wonderful exhibition, opened by our patron, Princess Michael of Kent. She looks at every piece of art in the Exhibition, which I find amazing. Two years ago she was delayed as there was huge traffic jam on the Mall. So she got out of her chauffeured car and walked down the Mall with several body guards so that we wouldn't have to wait too much longer.
Today's painting is "Birds at the table" and is part of a series painted in acrylic on gesso panel. I've worked really hard with this series and feel that I'm now in the swing of painting in a different medium and it's been lovely to have so much positive feedback. One of these paintings went off to live in Gloucester on Saturday.
See you next Monday - I'll attempt to get straight with the days!
