Change of scene/ Japanese Lady /Batman and the Meercats

What a change to the view from my studio! 

Today I ventured out in the snow to my painting group, a short distance from my home. Instead of the usual contingent of about fifteen there were only five present and we all left early as many side roads become very slippery late in the afternoon - cowards one and all!

I'm working on a painting of a Japanese lady  but brought my watercolour art box in my rush to get out instead of my acrylics box. Stupidly I added some gouache into the lady's clothing and it looks awful (the pink bits at the bottom of the painting) so I guess I'll paint over it with acrylic later. Bit of a wasted trip but the tea and biscuits were nice.

 I enjoy the stimulation of working in a group and the same applies to Ceramics - where I'm headed tomorrow - weather permitting.

Another little art job about to be done is adapting my grandson's birthday card into a Batman birthday card (Batman has taken the place of Fireman Sam and Bob the Builder in his affections). 

Here is the original.

And here's the new card. 
Hope he likes it.

Glad you like Japanese Lady despite her current shortcomings which need urgent fixing. She was only begun because I did not feel like working on the garden watercolour painting, "commissioned " by you. Keep readin' the blogs - makes it worthwhile to know that they are not just going into a black hole!

The special card you have created for Rafi is indeed, very "special" and am sure he will love it. Methinks you could create a separate business designing such cards for individuals. In fact, I remember receiving one of your unique cards 40 years ago congratulating me on my uni results. It was on grey cardboard and started with the words "if I were a bell I'd be ringing..." A small, thoughtful gesture from you but gave me such joy.

Just posted it a few minutes ago so that hopefully it will get to him on his birthday which is tomorrow, 16th.

Thanks so much, Jan. Appreciate your kind comment. You are very talented - all your paintings are great!

Jo, it gives me a lovely feeling that you loved that card so much - and still remember it! Wouldn't it be nice if Rafi recalls his special birthday card in years to come? I do enjoy adapting existing cards to make them 'special' for the person concerned; it's really easy - but quite honestly I don't think customers would be prepared to pay what it would cost. Probably the fun would go out of it if it was for money.
