I have worked part time all ofmy life and only painted a couple of hours occasionally and then lockdown happens! I could and did paint every day and was at peace with myself, tragically so many suffered and died and we followed all of the rules to keep safe, I reflected on my life and retirement became reality Chistmas Day 2020. My studio is my conservatory which is not ideal, I now paint daily and have also started painting plein air and being confident whilst out. I truly do find peace in paint, so I am locked down but very definitely not broken!
