Here is the start of Bea. New customers and the eagle eyed amongst you might notice that I've been a bit slower of late with my work and that I've given my waiting commissions large amounts of time to work on them. This is because unfortunately my dad has been taken really ill and so I need to make sure I can drop things if I need to get back to Devon in a hurry. He has been ill for many years and we had prepared ourselves for this day but it's still been quite a shock seeing him so ill and we're praying that he won't have to suffer for too much longer, hence keeping my time table as flexible as possible. And I don't want those of you who have deadlines to worry, I will get the paintings done in time, hence my time allocations for each.
