Happy New Year to all…..
In that wonderful lazy no man’s land between Christmas and New Year I have been contemplating the perfect person I could be if I implemented my list of resolutions. This list is as long as a very long arm can be… not only trailing on the floor, but draped over the furniture as well. Advice from the elegant sparkling TV presenter is to take a modest approach to this mammoth task…like eating the elephant, take it one bite at a time.
So, instead of resolving to draw every bee in the world and to single handedly convert every apiphobe into an apiphile, I have pledged to paint a set of British Bees. I know I can do this. It will involve some more delicious research and has a tentative exhibition outcome.
A “possible resolution” is to draw something every day (starting tomorrow). Unfortunately the sweet talking Sloth of Sloth has been cosying up this last week and has to be replaced by some more bee like activity.
The “impossible resolution” is, to be taller. This is a perennial resolution which just stays on the list and I fondly think might be achievable one day.
