Clearing Studio Dust

Over the weekend, probably because it was so cold and damp and I was happy to be inside, I did a clearing of studio dust and messes that have been tolerated.

New for ARTTOUR, Part 2

Just when I thought I had produced everything for the Annual Open Studios ARTTOUR a stampede of inspiration galloped in, culminating in 52 new artworks.

My knees were bothering me, so it was more comfortable to sit rather than stand as I usually do.
