Yesterday we had a bit of a birthday lunch for Uncle Frank's 85th birthday...his first birthday without Auntie Glad. It was just us, being quiet...it wasn't sombre by any means, we just allowed him to 'be'. We chatted a little about the funeral arrangements, ate lunch, put the TV on for a while so he could watch some snooker...just ordinary everyday stuff, because life goes on. He put on his Sunday best, he looks quite dapper don't you think?
When Andy took him home, I thought I'd try to get my art calendar up to date...
I've still got a little work to do, but here are the pages so far. I used an image from a magazine ( see next photo) The lady looks like she has a lot going off in her head (kinda like me at the moment!) I can't believe how much I messed about trying to mirror the colours and the 'eye' doodley bits in her hair in the MAY title! I had to call it a day and couldn't bear the thought of all that wasted time so I used it anyway!
I decided I liked the tag size I used in my April pages as it gave a little more room to write (just realised I haven't photographed finished April - that will have to be next post seeing as I'm half way through this now!)
See those gritted teeth? That's what I feel like just now!
Sometimes you just have to hole up and wait for better days ahead.
