Contentment...So Ruth and I have been here almost three weeks in this green and pleasant land. It has been wonderful seeing our kids and grandchildren.... interacting with them playing and being called 'Grandad' & 'Nanna'! We have already visited quite few towns and villages and connected with galleries and people regarding our work.... all well... all good.
Frustration... So why do I feel so frustrated??? I know... It's because I haven't touched a pencil or a brush in these three weeks.I know how much painting is an integral part of me, but this is like what they describe as cold turkey!!!! So yesterday we went to get some Gesso and hopefully today the watercolour paper we ordered arrives.... yeah!!!!!!!!!! Then I can resume where I left off in Malta.
Ah Malta.... I miss some of it... mostly our friends and Charles Grech, where Ruth and I would sit (mostly outside in Republic street) and 'people watch' while sipping our coffees. But we will be back before long... you haven't seen the last of us Malta!!!
Desire... we have come here with a plan... oh yes!!! our desire is to extend our art in as many places in the UK as possible... as i said we have already made a good start...we just have to work hard and smart... but with my Ruthie next to me, I know we shall succeed.
