Fairy and Fox. . .

I'm doing two courses at the same time...is that bad or good? My head is bursting with ideas, colours, fairies, unicorns, witches, birds, butterflies, foxes and squirrels, you name it, I want to capture it on paper.... there is so much noise going on that it's hard to sleep. I just want to be in my "Art Bunker" with my imagination and my magic wands...my day job is getting in the way of creating....  grrrrr!

I'm off tomorrow evening on a cycling weekend to a beautiful part of France...the friends that we're going with are all quite fit and sporty...I'm rubbish and I have very short legs...Mr Hollywood used to be a semi-professional cyclist....I'm going to suffer big time.... My legs and bum are already hurting just thinking about it....hope they just leave me on the side of the road with my sketch pad and paints!!!!! am praying for lots of wine too...medicinal purposes of course...



There is sure to be some Fun and Nonsense this weekend...:) xx

I'm always praying for wine- for any purpose! Liking the coloring around the eyes of the fox!

These are very fun! I can relate to the "Short legs" as I am just under 5' tall! I love biking and can do about 12 miles at a time before I can do no more, and I have a basket on my bike with a dorky bell that has bright colors like a circus tent, but hey that is how I roll :)
I hope you have a grand time, I bet you will enjoy it!

Beautiful paintings Catherine. Hope you have a wonderful cycle trip - sure the scenery will make up for your aching muscles! Bring back some more lovely paintings!

Bugger the day job... your work is looking too awesome to ignore... but cycling with fit people... are you mad!!!!... hoping that you are sitting propped in a picturesque field sketching and checking your phone for comments around now... not getting sweaty and a sore ass ... where is the fun in that... wine and a view sounds more civilized!!!
Hope you aren't too sore...xx
