It's been a busy few months and last week I broke my nose accidentally on my vehicle's car door (rushing too much as usual). Fortunately it was only a hairline fracture and it's much better now, but I did feel rather silly. I'm happy that I can be back in my studio busily at work once again...and back at this series of 'Fashion Plates'. There's been a lot of orange in my palette lately, which is interesting as it's not a particular favorite colour but blue is (any shade) and orange is its compliment. As the days grow longer and the sun shines brighter, I wonder if I've been influenced by it.
