This week I've been in recovery! After the painting a day fundraiser(which ends on saturday at 7.30pm- still time to bid! The link, if you're interested ,is http://www.trademe.co.nz/art/paintings/other/watercolour/auction-563389610.htm ) and helping organise the market at Nelson Lakes Festival. I just needed to potter, so have been working hard in the garden, catching up with grass cutting,which takes 3 days, and thinking about winter veges. As I work I'm thinking about painting, looking at my beautiful hollyhocks, watching the light on the mountains, enjoy the texture of the tussocks in the breeze. And yes, smelling the roses.
