It has been such a long time since I have been able to get on with some painting. I started this months ago hoping to complete three other designs as well ready for Christmas cards. Unfortunately that plan has gone out of the window and I think I will keep the designs tucked away for next year. School seems to have taken over and I am there far more than I should be. Trouble is I love it as much as I love illustrating but trying to find the balance is tricky. Who knows what next year will bring.
