After the torrential rain and gales that have been blowing a hoolie here over the last few days, I'm surprised that I've managed to drop by for WOYWW without being swept clean past!
'Bertha' the ex-hurricane has delivered her best (or should that read worst?) but thankfully we've escaped quite well in this part of the country considering.
I have to say I'm a little stunned that the calendar still says it's August with the weather we're experiencing. So much so that I've actually checked it numerous times just in case a few months have slipped by without me noticing.
There's even talk of autumn but I'm just not going to listen, as I'm not ready for that...
not yet anyway.
So onto my desk this Wednesday which is what Wednesday's are all about...
WOYWW (What's on your work desk Wednesday, for anyone that doesn't know).
I suppose it seems fitting that I'm working and painting a woolly cow this week.
A highland cow to be precise.
Everything seems to be wrapped up for coziness right now, so why not the cattle too?
I'm still working from my kitchen table and probably will be for some time to come.
It's safer for starters as the studio doesn't have one ounce of space clear at the moment.
It's a hive of activity and buzzing like a bees nest with my daughter's Etsy shop taking off plus commissions coming in. It's all very exciting and I'm thrilled, although I seem to have acquired the job description of admin assistant and chief tea maker!
I do hope there's a name badge at least...
Now onto 'Hetty' as I've now decided to call her.
She definitely looks like a she doesn't she?
The paper has crinkled slightly but that's not surprising as I've had to round her up after every session, so that we can use the table.
She's been wandering from shelves to worktops and at the moment sitting on our bread bin... which is no mean feat for a highland cow, I can tell you!
As you can see, I've still got a lot to add to her, so I'm going to carry on now before the light or next storm cloud appears.
If you'd like to see artists finished work then there'll be lots of desks to visit over at Julia's Stamping Ground.
Have a great week and Happy WOYWW to one and all.
I'll be painting and watching 'The Great British Bake Off' tonight so I may be a little later visiting your desks, but I hope to get there eventually.
See you again soon
