There has been an incredible amount of sport on in our place this weekend, which is just the motivation and incentive that I need.
No not to get physical, fit or anything along those lines... now that would be too much to ask.
It just means that I have no excuse but to play with my paints to my hearts content!
Don't ask me why I chose to paint Christmas puds because firstly, I've just finished eating a huge Sunday roast dinner and secondly, I don't even eat Christmas puds!
Do you ever have that happen... that you get and idea and just have to go with it when there's really no logic to it?
I'm going to link up with Alexandra over at her Blue Chair Diary blog today.
Alexandra is creating illustrations for her very own Christmas Illo Advent and she has some fantastic cute illustrations.
It's not the best time of day to take photographs, but then it's dark by 4pm at the moment, so there's not many hours of daylight in which to capture an image.
I've tried to be loose with this painting... something I find very hard to do.
I hope you've had a great weekend and are ready for a fun packed week ahead.
Thanks for your visit and I hope to see you again soon.
