I’ve been spending quite a bit of time over the last week preparing for my ‘Open Studios’ weekends in September.
This time I’m making two different calendars, and have printed off all the pages for them both. One is my usual mix of paintings that I’ve done this year, and the other has all twelve of my little ‘From my Garden’ still-life paintings from this project which I did through last year. I’ve put a photo of beautiful oriental poppies from my gravel garden on the front cover, as you can see – one of my favourite flowers, but one which I didn’t paint, so I got them in this way instead!
My next job is to have a play with my new calendar binder, which puts on the white coated binding wire, and use my new thumb hole punch – I shall definitely be trying out on some scrap paper first, until I’ve worked out how to use it!
I’ve also been busy painting my Christmas card pictures – all will be revealed in due course . . . 🙂
