Cows on canvas gets all in a fluster

Well - I have had a busy time of it recently. Not painting much at the moment as I have got myself all involved with trying to stop a large supermarket being built out of town in our lovely town of Sherborne. The general consensus is that if we let them come it will ruin our historic and vibrant high street. (Oh and we have a puppy too which I am trying to train not to get all covered in paint in my studio!)

So suddenly, after being a bit half-hearted about these issues - being generally in agreement with shopping locally and supporting local producers - I have decided to put my money where my mouth is and GIVE UP SUPERMARKETS FOR LENT!! Day 5 today and going well. In fact, it is better so far - better food, more friendly shopping experiences and educating my kids about local food production - all positive stuff.

So how will this affect my painting? Well, hopefully the passion that I have for supporting local producers will translate a frenzy of painting local cows. Can't wait to start getting back in  the studio soon - just wish the supermarket menace would go away.....
