an invisible painting…

What?! Well, I’ve been painting it for a week. It was excitingly promising, then crushingly awful, and then when I gave up on it and swooshed acrylic around in a reckless and slightly hopeless manner and it became quite good again. I am pleased enough to have cut it off the drawing board.
But it is going to be a Christmas surprise and so I can’t show you it. Grr!
Instead, look at the sheer brilliance of Gemma Correll’s illustrations here. She delights me entirely – especially her happy meal for grown-ups (for the record, I’d like extra gin with mine).
