winter migration.

It's that time of year again when birds fly north, whales swim to warmer waters, and tiny people move their studios into warmer conditions. In the last few posts I have hinted at things being alittle 'off' at the moment. Well, after seeing my specialist yesterday, I can now confirm that I am unwell with inflammation of the joints, which is related to my Crohns disease. It has come on very fast and very aggressively this time... and to be honest with you, I have been left feeling very sore, and very frustrated.{Geez - how many times can I say very in a sentence??}

I am a person who never lets my medical problems take centre stage in what I want to do in my life. But I have to admit that in the last few weeks I have had to let go, stay still and rest, until I had more information about what was going on... So instead of feeling sorry for myself I pulled out the smallest brushes I could find, my palette full of oil paint, and migrated to warmer and more comfortable digs, where I can sit on a small + quiet desk in the house and work away on a canvas to enter into an art prize.

Looks luscious doesn't it?!

How can you be down when you can surround yourself in colours such as this...

I was thinking of you this morning and thought that sometimes no news isn't always good news. Hope you're keeping warm and well. Thinking of you. xxx
