‘Oh So’

Its been awhile since I last posted on my blog and feels like ages since I last painted…………good to be back!

Its been just over a year since we started renovating our new home, foundations to chimney pot, such a big job but at last I can get back to the small paintbrushes instead of the DIY kind. Its all been worth the hard work as I have somewhere comfortable to paint and a place where I can get messy too.

A year ago ‘Oh so” coffee shop opened up in the village of Horndean (Hampshire) it used to be the old post office but now with a facelift its a really nice relaxing place to enjoy a decent coffee and cake. ‘Oh so’ is a really nice place with scrummy cakes and great coffee, its a family run business, everyone is so friendly and its just what the village has been crying out for.

A couple of weeks ago we popped into to re fuel after a hard days shopping and i had an idea to get me back into painting, one of my ‘doodle and wash’ paintings of the coffee shop would be a good way to ease back into the paint palette. Although I was a little nervous to put paint to paper, I soon relaxed into it and now I’m itching to do more….
