Happy holidays everyone!

Hello all,

I hope you are all doing well. I just wanted to take a moment and wish you all the happiest of holidays. I celebrate Christmas myself, but no matter what you celebrate, I hope it will be wonderful  and I wish you all the best for the new year.  Who knows, maybe the world will remember/learn what peace is in 2018?

Once again I had not planned to stay away so long. Many weekends since my lost post were spent in the yard renovating the deck and preparing for winter. In the past few weeks my mom had minor surgery and my father-in-law fell off a stool and broke his shoulder 6 days before he and my-mother in-law moved to their new condo. It has been a bit of a bumpy ride, but they are both doing well. Jo and I are still surrounded by no baby and the wait has been much harder then we anticipated. They tell us not to think about it and go on with life as usual...easy to say! It has all been mentally and physically draining.  As of today I am on holiday for 2 weeks so I should finally be able to catch up on sleep...and work on my minis! In the meantime, I figured you deserved a sneak peak of things to come.

I was working on the ballroom floor and finished the medallion just to realize the rest of the floor would be a lot of calculations to accommodate the colonnade...

I decided to put the ballroom aside...again...and concentrate on the countess' study. I finished the floor...

I painted the ceiling...

And I painted the structural elements...

I know ...the pictures are cruel, but as you know I much prefer presenting a room when it is finished, and given I have the time off I will definitely post the study before I go back to work.

On that note, thank you all for following my adventures and allowing me to follow yours. It is always such a great pleasure for me to enjoy your artwork and get to know you through your blogs. I wish you all a year full of inspiration!

Big hugs to all,
