As it is taking such a long time, I thought I would put a photo of ‘work in progress’. It will get finished shortly, I keep thinking, only another week. Only another week. I don’t think I will try such a large one again for some time. As you can see I use a very small brush, this is why I can paint such fine detail. Mum has tried to persuade me to use large ones, but I’m not happy with them. We have had a frame made and it is just sitting there, in my studio, waiting for the painting. I expect I will be very proud of it once it’s all finished.
Another exciting thing is that Mum is going to see the printers next week to look at the samples for the cards. There will be 10 different designs in all, five will be 6 inches square and five will be 5 x 7 inches. We are going to sell them in packs of five with rainbow coloured envelopes.
Then the next thing will be to have the invitation cards printed. It’s just as well that I have Mum and my brother to help me.
