I started painting in my free time. I had an etsy shop for a while but it felt like I was selling my children, so I got rid of it. I gave a few away as gifts too, but that feels like a bit of a hefty burden to put on someone. What can they do if they don’t like it?
Anyway, one day I’d like to have a little broom cupboard where I can paint and keep all my paintings and it will be like some sort of place to quietly go mad in old age, a bit like Churchill’s studio at Chartwell, except middle-class and warm.
