These little studies !i do for February are really testing me. Sometimes I finish a canvas, stand back, look at it and it horrifies me! I then put it way back in the darkand when I come back to it a day or so later, I find it not so bad after all.The painting fairy passed by and touched it with her magic wand.

I am a little under the weather since last Friday and feel tired, mentally and physically. The gooseberries were a bigger challenge than usual and if the Painting fairy hadn’t stopped by and woven her wand over it, you might not have seen it.

I actually like the painting of the gooseberries the most! It’s wonderfully surreal, as if some part of my vision was changed by a kind of hexagonal lens – if that makes any sense.
thank you very much..it was one of the paintings that had to “grow on me” and which I now am quite fond of. Thank you!
