... for Christmas travelling. While I'm very fond of travelling in general and the specific, it's this time of year I really don't like it. But I'm hopeful that by leaving not on 22nd or thereabouts but slightly earlier, and by not going on the most roundabout route with six changes from bus/train/flight, it should be ok.
For the first time, I've taken apart a painting to take with me. While I've taken apart plenty paintings because I didn't like them, I have the full intentions to put this back together on the other side. In fact, it's part of my tidying up and cleaning out attempt, and this has been promised to my brother for quite some time.
Actually, it was my first acrylic painting on canvas, done about one and half years ago, and one which wasn't undone shortly after. It's based on a scene near Newtown St Boswell's in the Scottish Borders where a friend of mine used to live for a couple of years.
