Ah so my sister moved out of home. Boo boo sob sob. I’m all lonely and sad..
My mum has let me turn her now empty room into a “studio.”
My big fat plans to be able to paint ginormous paintings have come true.
This one is a big old gal. 1 metre by 1 metre. She isn’t quuiiiiiite finished but as always, I will show you the almost dry, almost finished version.
The Real Deal won’t be greatly different. A few more layers on the old sharpie and she is good to go.
This is exactly what I meant when I said that I would much rather wait until I paint something that I love rather than showing off things that I can’t stand the sight of. I am well happy with this one.
In unrelated news, the more avid of readers out there will know that I recently posted about my friend Steph. She is raising money for the mental health charity Mind.
She has done phenomenally well and raised her £1000 target in less than 24 hours. She tore her target a new one! As a result she bumped the baldification forward 6 weeks and will be shaving her noggin on Friday. If you’re curious as to what I am doing this weekend, I can tell you now that it will involve mass alcohol consumption and a good old go with a pair of hair clippers.
She is so brave it makes my eyes water a little bit. She has helped me endlessly over the years. Times when I’ve wanted nothing more than to hide in my bed for a week and work my way through a variety pack of Walkers, she has forced me up and out and cheered me up endlessly. A bloody massive great big heart. And shortly, an alarmingly shiny scalp.
We need to get this up to £2000.
