Truth be told I was dreading Christmas Day this year. We sadly lost my Nana in July and as she usually comes to my house for Christmas lunch it was always going to be a hard day. But it went off ok,
with the usual scramble to get mothers and mother in laws sitting down and the criss cross of dishes over the table. The days after have been filled with walks and too much telly, and chocolate. So not bad in all.
I did get to paint after all on St. Stephen’s day and chose to revisit the two chucks from brook lodge. There’s something Christmasy about that cadmium red background.
