I am still very very very tired even though I actually got enough sleep last night and was only up once for my baby girl. She's been really crook for almost a week now and during that time has cut 4 teeth. So while being sick and flu-ey and chest infection-ey, the poor wee mite has also had the pain of teeth coming through which means she's cut 6 teeth in the last 3 weeks which is a lot. This has also meant that she hasn't been sleeping well at all, hence her mother has been sleeping even less.
I however did manage to start the sky on this seascape commission which you can see above on my easel with Connor enjoying the sun below. The sky still needs some work, but once that is done, the rest seems to come together easily so I am hoping I can do more tonight and get this finished quickly.
I have also found a new blog this morning called Virtual Sketch Date and once a month there is a photo posted and you have a week to do your version of it. I'm hoping to get this finished before Saturday which is the cut off so fingers crossed for that and I'll post my version then. Check it out here for this months image and how it all works.
Also please check out Reach Out on trademe. My husband and I put a bid in on the weekend however I don't think we will be lucky enough to get it for what we bid, and it is worth so much more. I also feel that it does belong in a public setting, whether in a foyer somewhere or something similar, but it would be nice if it ends up in the right place for many people to enjoy. DH and I have talked about if we were lucky enough to be the winners, that perhaps we would donate it to the right sort of place.
