|'Nature's Palette' - acrylic impasto on mini canvas (5 x 4 inches)|
This is another mini landscape that I started a little while ago and just added some finishing touches to, today. As always, I have S to thank for the gorgeous photos he takes that I then use as a reference. This was taken at Sandside Head which isn't far from our cottage.
Ah, sunsets. I vaguely remember them as, this week, it seems that winter has hi-jacked summer and poor autumn hasn't even had a look in! I've had to don hat, gloves, scarf, ear muffs and waterproof jacket to walk the dogs on the beach that mere weeks ago I walked on barefoot in short sleeves. I'm sure August used to still be a summer month!

In other news, I've actually been working on something totally different this week - different from anything I've painted so far because it is neither an animal nor a landscape! It's a little set of two paintings and I should hopefully be finished the first one at the weekend so once I've shown it to the person it's intended for, I'll be able to post it here and Facebook (not that it seems to matter as Facebook's weird algorithms ensure that very few folk actually see anything on pages that aren't making them money in the form of ad revenue!)Has anyone else noticed that the more 'likes' their page gets, the less people seem to interact with your posts? The more Facebook changes the more I'm tempted to just ditch it altogether but I'm too nosy and I like trawling through all the guff that clogs up my newsfeed to find posts from actual friends to see what they're up to!
This is my little PC companion (as in 'personal computer' not 'political correctness') Lily is the most affectionate cat ever and wants nothing more than to sit on your knee - all day if you'd let her! It makes typing a little more challenging but I love her snuggly warmth on my lap as I tap away at the keyboard!

I'll be linking up with Paint Party Friday this week and catching up with new art from some of the regulars and newbies at the Party.
