The Silly Season of December is upon us. I find myself torn in many pieces, trying to work, finish off with kids at schools and fulfill all the commitments, being work and social that one seems to have this time of the year. We all just need to remember the true blessing and meaning of Christmas. We need to love and find time for one another and not get caught up in this whole retail experience that Christmas and December seem to bring. Our new website is up, for those who haven't seen go have a look: www.painted-canvas.com Marietjie thank you so much for creating this beautiful site. I know you spend many hours and quite a few sleepless nights. You have such talent, WOW!!!!
We also paid a visit to the Retirement Village in Bellville, Huis Boland, where we were invited to their annual Christmas function. We were asked to adorn their front entrance with some of our paintings just to add colour to their home and that we sure did. They truly enjoyed the pop of colour and lead to some interesting conversation, quite a few artist among them. Photo's will follow soon. Life is so fleeting, and we really need to enjoy each other. Looking at these elderly people, realizing how many people they have already lost, how they all live together in unison. Reminded me a bit of being back at boarding school, forming friendships with others, such joy in the simple things.
I am busy with two large commissions, I am hoping to wrap up very soon and will post some photo's. We are so very excited for what 2014 holds and I know that it is going to be a great success. Our forthcoming newsletter will tell all.
