A Seaside Hideaway

My  Seaside Hideaway is hot off the machine, accompanied by the pouring rain outside, not a drop of sunshine to be seen!
My heart has been lifted though as I watched from the studio window the little robins feeding along with a tiny little wren hopping about beneath the bird feeder oblivious to the cold and just busy being about their everyday business. Oh, lovely little garden birds.

My idea of making a couple more pieces in lovely spring and summer themes about the sea for the forthcoming exhibition at  The Ropewalk Gallery has gone right out of the window since this onset of very cold weather, my people by the sea are well wrapped up in "A rainy walk by the sea" I am now going to try very hard and make a lady and her cat lying on a rug but the waters edge, Owwh, I can just feel the icy waves nibbling at my toes, oh, roll on summer!
