Wintertime Creations. Here in Eastbourne the days are short and the temperature has dropped to a shiver. The wind and rain tap tirelessly on my studio door, and long evening hours are spent in front of a crackling fire. Outside, the colours of Summer have forfeited to a soft grey, and we are set for a long cold Winter. I dream of the warm sunshine of Summer, with its attending glorious hues. Until then, I will just have to live vicariously through my winter artworks. One hundred days working in front of a warm fire should produce one hundred exciting accidental artworks. We shall see! And then Summer will return. Bravo!



I go out with a group of sketchers every Wednesday afternoon to record local places of interest. Lately it has been so cold that my sketches have mainly been the interiors of coffee shops. Here is some detail from yesterday's sketch inside a coffee shop in Pauatahanui.
