I've been away for a few days, went to stay with my sister and help out at the charity event she was orgainsing.
Last year my sister's youngest, at just 16, was diagnosed with leukaemia and has been (and still is) being well cared for at Birmingham Queen Elizabeth Young Person's Unit (for ages 16-24) who have made the awful, awful treatment they have to endure, so much more bearable for the young adults.
The organisation, Teenage Cancer Trust (TCT), help fund the unit and once my niece was out of the woods, she and her siblings wanted to raise some money for TCT and also another charity, Cure Leukaemia. Of course, the work fell onto my sister's shoulders!
The night went very well and a fantastic amount was raised - we are all so pleased!
Anyway, after a long train journey, I am back home and raring to go with my art. I did manage to finish a talisman before I left last week and I did gesso another large canvas ready to go.
