Pure love is so often expressed between animal and human.

If you need to relax and dream beautiful thoughts – find an animal that needs lots of love and they will return it to you.


“Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened”. Anatole France.

Petting, scratching, and cuddling a dog or a cat can be as soothing to the mind and heart as deep meditation.

    Your art is just amazing. I adore my puppies and you’ve completely captured that love. Both the Pyr. and the beagle have their own special luvvy eyes for us. thank you for that gift.

    I just love Phoebe–so pretty. Here you can’t even have a holiday without the covid cases skyrocketing as people took flight on the airines. We stayed put and zoomed with out four children and ten grandchidren. Just read an article that said elderly people have adjusted better to seclusion mainly because they have been through difficult times before. I hope you are well and are taking good care of yourself over there. Cry it from the highest tree: we will have a new president come January.

      Yes Phoebe is a beauty:). and a lovely temperament. The virus continues to spread and grow here – and I think anyone who is thinking clearly is staying away from crowds and spending the holidays at home. The good news is that hopefully vaccinations will be with us soon. We are all living one day at a time.
      I can assure you that everyone I know, on both sides of the big Pond are absolutely thrilled with this development. I think there will be a huge collective sigh of relief on 20th January :).
      It’s damp and cold today but lovely and cosy in my flat/studio. A day to paint..
      I hope you all continue to stay well. Sending my very best wishes to you and all the family. Janet X

    A day to paint and for me a day to write and read. Diana counted yesterdays: I am currently reading thirteen books at the same time. She says I am manic, and I usually am. Have never been able to read one book at a time. Thank you for your kind good wishes for us. I hope your work day is fruitful. Do you have a work clearly in mind before you start or do you just sit down and lift a brush and go to it?

      The thirteen books made me chuckle:)..I am not quite like you but I do always have two or three going.
      When I start my work day which is from 9 am til 3 p.m. I usually have a good idea of what I will be doing. Today I am preparing for a live workshop tomorrow (very socially distanced) at the HUB – the new centre which has opened within minutes of where I live and work. I always like to be very prepared for any workshop whether it be a few people or a large crowd. After this workshop I plan to re-organise the flat/studio and sort of get into a more relaxed mode over the holidays. I actually have a friend coming here for lunch on the 17th and again the HUB has all sorts of things happening that I can attend if I wish or not. Because it is an inside/outside venue and very spacious it is easy to conform to rules.
      I have missed my away workshops this year, but hopefully – one day at a time – I will be in Portugal come April. we will see.
      Enjoy your books and tell Diana I think she is amazing. X
