I’m keeping my New Year resolutions well so far with four days out of four at the paintbrush and another finished painting. I feel like I’m building up to something bigger and more complicated, but in the meantime I loved doing this sweet little pic. I’ve included a shot of the real thing next to the finished piece because the scale of the props is a bit of a head bender and it helps explain it. And a different colour palette than normal for me; decorating rooms in shades of grey must have worn off on me but I’m liking it.
