I count this painting i did for my husband a couple of months ago, as an early Xmas present. I printed out a sketch i did onto an 80x160cm canvas and added colour by hand using acrylics, and some left over wall paint so that it matches the living room. Its still a work-in-progress…i keep looking at it and one day it will come down and get a good old re-vamp.

Christmas is here…along with my rapidly emptying wallet! I went to the shops to find decorations for our Christmas plant (there’s no room for a tree in our tiny house), and everything i liked was so expensive! 5 euros for 1 decoration! What the…!!! If i am not mistaken, is there not a crisis in Greece at the moment?! Who the hell is going to buy anything at that price! I dont even want to know how much money you need to decorate a huge tree!

So with 5 euros i bought 1 kilo of air-dry clay that i used to make all the decorations for our “tree”. Add some paint, left-over ribbon and lights and hey presto! The Christmas spirit is here!
