Royal Visit

I went to see the Queen Elizabeth the II and the Duke of Edinburgh at Dockyard this afternoon... here she is just after getting off the ferry. The weather is so beautiful today - not bad for November in the Northern hemisphere, I bet the Queen wishes she could stay here in Bermuda a bit longer!

New Cloud Painting

A new painting - my house is the one of the right. I painted as if I was standing on the road looking back over the brow of the hill, over Harrington Sound, and over the skyline of the hills of the island on the other side (the sound is a lagoon). Makes me appreciate how tiny Bermuda is, and how little land there actually is....

Enjoyed doing this painting, its one of my favourites for a while (probably because its of my home!) but I'm really depressed at the moment...can't seem to shake it. Partly homesickness, partly frustration with the lack of progression my illustration career, I think. Every time I get a decent job I think 'this is it' and do it, enjoy it, get good feedback from the publisher and then nothing again for weeks. I know there's a recession on but still... nothing seems to be going according to plan and I just keep getting older.

Children's portrait

Finally finished with the two little girls' portraits!! I like this one much better than the first, the size the colour scheme - everything!!
