Well, the winter has finally hit the usually sunny island of Malta. The temp has dropped like a stone. The flip flops are off and the boots are back. The fires are on and I'm snuggled up in a blanket writing this. Because this is the Med and therefore mostly hot, all the paintings in our sitting room tend toward the cool end of the colour spectrum with the odd splash of red, now winter his arrived we've changed them all for paintings with warm colours and rich dark hues, amazing how much difference it makes.

I've been doing some more with the graphic tablet, this is one that I really enjoyed making this


Just when we thought winter had us in it's icy grip, the skies took on summer blue. We sat on the roof playing backgammon and drinking wine so the batteries are re-charged and we're ready for the next onslaught. Even better I won the backgammon ha ha
