I've been working this week making pots, bowls and plates, keeping to a sort of theme Birds, chickens and parrots. Got them in the kiln today, hopefully glaze on Monday.

With the exhibition dates coming up really soon, I have been sketching my ideas in the studio, out walking, at the kitchen table, even waiting in the car for my turn to have my Covid vaccine. Now having filled loads of sketchbooks it's time to paint and pot. I have made a series of bowls, vases and pots which I will cover with birds I see daily on my walks. Oil painted Goldfinch, acrylic and mixed media and slip painted on earthenware pot unfired.

I decided to take the @strada_easel challenge. 1 painting from life (no photos) everyday of January 2021. Seeing as I paint most days, I really didn't think this would be too hard - I was wrong!!! I wake up in a sort of panic thinking 'what on earth am I going to paint today'! Also it's January and it's cold out there!, and we are in Lockdown, so no driving to a nice view and sitting in the car painting the Landscape. So I've been carrying my little pochade box on dog walks and painting as I go - hence, the quick small oil paintings.

Days 1 - 7
