Long time away

I've been in England with my sick 91 year old Papa. He is now out of hospital and rehabilitation and is back living in his home with a 24 hour carer. Not ideal but better than it was. He was doing so well before he got sick and then off his feet - as they say. He is now walking with a zimmer frame or at best two sticks.

Anyway, now I am back and I see Paint Party Friday is into its second year and there are almost a 100 people signing up. WOW.

I have done very little art but have been writing. That's much more transportable. I did make little drawings of my two main protagonists.
           This is Tass                     This is Mirana
 In the original they have brown eyelashes not red as it would seem from these photographs, And yes folks, its a young adult novel! I'm about half way through and a bit um ... stuck in transition but am sure its going to flow again very soon. Still writing it everyday, just changing my mind about how its going to happen - a lot.

Also going to start work soon on some illustrations for a dinosaur story for kids. I am going to do some paintings and my partner is going to write the story. Hopefully. If he finds time. Maybe. Anyway that's the plan! So down the track I will start showing those.

YOO HOO my first blog for over two months.
