Paint my world

Hello everyone 

I'm so sorry I've been absent in blogland family ties 
have kept me extremely busy from the onset of 2022. 

House hunting, viewings and preparing to downsize 
my MIL, it's just a small part of my world this year. 

Away from my creative space I've been doodling down my 
days on anything destined for the recycle bin, painting 
with a very limited watercolour & gouache palette. 

Let me share a little of my January with you..

First a self portrait painted on brown packaging, it depicts how 
I really need (want) to show my creative space and materials more 
love in 2022 and use up what I already have around me...

Out with the uncomfortable, old, unfixable chair and in with the new..

The cleaning out of closets discovering boxes unopened from 1999 
full of old books and encyclopedia's from my late Father in Law..

Catching my breath from dusty closets days to take in those mild sunny ones..

putting my feet up so late in the evening falling asleep in that new 
comfy chair dreaming of what to do with thirteen A4 encyclopedias..

It's just a small part of my painted world this January.. 

I've very much missed you all and looking 
forward to seeing how you are and what 
you've all been creating.. 

Catch up with you all asap.. 

Creative Hugs 
Tracey xx
