Here are the first of my new gouache paintings. Quality of the photos could be better, but it gives you an idea.

No classes in February as I'm just too busy! Basket making this Saturday with Mónica. I'm very excited about it!


Oh, and the first sock continues...

Here are some snaps from Christmas in Budapest.

We had a fantastic time and look forward to returning another time to enjoy more from this beautiful city. The food was great and we learned that cabbage is well loved here and one glass of mulled wine is pretty potent stuff.

We saw some paintings by Adolf Fényes who did some lovely interior and still life paintings. 

Also an excellent exhibition at the Hungarian National Gallery (MNG) of Rippl-Rónai and Maillol which explored the work and the importance of the relationship between these two artisits who were working largely at the end of the 19th and the start of the 20th centuries. The exhibition continues until April 2015.
