Painting equals



Painting = fun, play, trepidation, release, balm, struggle, challenge, excitement, frustration, enlightenment, learning, compulsion, happiness..............

  10. Great Constable quote, so true - thanks Kayla. x

    Hello Tracey, hope that you're not away from the sea for too much longer. x

    Definitely wild and rugged at times, and Bude would be wide open to Atlantic gales. Thanks Pipany. x

  13. I quite agree Lesley. With painting you never quite know what you are going to get until it is finished. I can almost feel the cold of the northerly gale. Very atmospheric.
