Painting

This afternoon I went to a painting workshop. I painted this highland bull. It will have a place in DH's pub, next to his beloved whisky's.
It's far from perfect, but I'm satisfied with it. I made appointments for two more workshops in painting as it was such a nice afternoon.
For the first time since DH's passing, I could concentrate on something without any further thoughts. I was really happy with the result and I felt happy over all. So this was really the first step into a 'next' life. It's difficult to explain, but I guess you understand.

Hello Edith,

I LOVE your painting, it's beautiful! It's such a charming bull really, I wouldn't mind meeting him ;) I love those hairs falling down on his face. You really did a great job and I am glad you could concentrate like this. Have fun with the next painting events!

Bye & hugs, Carolien

Wow, that is a great Highland Bull. Do you have those bulls in Belgium ? I know they have them in the Highlands of Scotland and we have some here in Australia.
