It's school holidays and this week got off to a slow start with the household coming down with a head cold. We're slowly picking up the pieces now, and I can't believe it's already Thursday! 

Despite the first few days being a write off, I did manage to put the finishing touches on my painting for this month's "Monthly Painter's Challenge". The secret topic was "Winter".


 Lately I've been obsessed with berries of all kinds, maybe it's because of the cold weather, or maybe I've just developed more of a taste for them as I've gotten older (I'm nearly 30 you know!!). I was eating some raspberries in the car the other day when I started imagining a painting of a girl/princess surrounded by berries. I immediately conjured up a colour palette of rich reds, deep blues, violets and dark purples. So, when I saw that this month's challenge was "Winter" I immediately set about creating "Winterberry". She has deep burgundy eyes, strawberry blonde hair and wears a winterberry crown.
