Praise the end of the week

This week has been one of the most exhausting in my life. First of all, I resigned from my job because I got offered a new job in an advertising studio. I feel so happy that I won't have to deal with my current boss any more, however it means a very busy 2 weeks as I wrap everything up in my current job.

Secondly, my grandfather died last Sunday, and I had to fly up to North Queensland on Tuesday for his funeral. It was an emotionally and physically draining day- up at 3:45am, a sad and busy, busy day, home at 11:30pm and work the next day.

I really haven't done any art all week as it has been so busy, so I feel so grateful for the easter break, a chance to get back on top of everything. At the moment I am sitting in a bean bag on my veranda drinking beer, eating blue cheese, and listening to the panda band. It has just finished raining so everything has cooled down a bit. It's so nice to relax! The photo above is what I'm looking at at the moment.

I will be cramming as much art into the next week as I can, so I will be back soon.

What a hard week you have had. I'm sorry about your grandpa, I know how that feels. I hope your moving to another job is a positive thing.
On a good note, one of your pieces was in a treasury on etsy's front page. Well done.
