On my desk wednesday!

Im not gone! I just recovered one of the computers in the house for a few minutes. The husband is on a short vacation and decided that it was the right time to upgrade I don't know what, so he's had all the computers around the house linked in a network while he does I don't know what to them... very annoying as it is taking a bit longer than expected. Why do men have to upgrade everything every other month?
I have been enjoying the last few days of summer. When I left the house at 8.30am today, it was 14C...in August??? how can it be so cold!
I have, therefore, been working more on my paintings, what with no computers and locked up indoors. It has it's positive sides not having a computer available all day.
I've had a thing with peacocks for the past few weeks... month? I've drawn, painted, molded in clay, handfelted them. Why? don't know. Because I dont stick too close to the original model really, but I think I like the concentrical design in the feathers... or... don't know really!

So, while the kid was napping today, I was busy with this:



I know, the pics aren't very clear... sorry. It is done now... so I will show you later.
Now Im going to sit down and try to draw ANYTHING but a peacock... blank...Im blank
