Artistic ambitions

I am getting a rather good feeling about 2013 and have lots of exciting things lined up. The most fabulous piece of luck arrived last week, when a friend commissioned me to paint a picture for her sister. This is something I've dreamt of forever and now I can put it on my list of things to do before I die and then tick it. Even better is the subject, which is to be flowers. So now I get to collect floral inspiration as part of this wonderful adventure and blogging about it is all part of the planning process.
