I've finished three more small collages, and have six others in progress. For the ones in progress, I decided I wanted to include something different. After coming across Karen's beautiful Etsy shop: Arte Bella Surplus, I went bead-mad and ordered a colourful assortment of glass beads, which I'm eagerly awaiting. As soon as I've completed them, I'll post photos.

In the studio, I've been working on larger scale paintings for a show I have in a Ministry building here in Munich in March. It's a very big building with very big walls. So, I need to complete a big series of big paintings.
One thing I've learned about myself: when I'm supposed to be working on one type of thing, suddenly other types of things become so much more appealing.

This is a small series, of small paintings (30 x 30 / 20 x 20 / 15 x 15 cm.) It's done: I painted the edges black this morning. With luck, I'll be able to find a small venue for these.
I am not going to need a hot water bottle this Winter.
