Merry Christmas!!

 
 I had hoped to paint something with a Christmas theme to post but time got away from me. Instead I nipped down to the beach with my camera along with some tinsel and baubles to create a festive beach scene.
 I've managed to do a few quick sketches of some native flowers over the past couple of weeks which I hope to post soon. It is after 11pm Christmas Eve and I'm still running around like an idiot finalising things ready for the morning! Organisation is not my strong point! I hope you all have things more in hand than I do and are all set for the big day. Wishing everyone a wonderful Christmas! May it be sunny or white - depending which part of the world you are from.

    1. Hi Jeff, it was so nice to meet you and Bett the other day. I trotted back to get my camera after speaking to you and most of the swimmers had left by the time I returned. I got some nice shots though, hopefully some will be suitable to paint from. The colours and the light were gobsmacking weren't they!?
      It was such a nice surprise to see your comment here - thank you! I hope you visit again! Happy New Year!!
