More pages from my moleskine notebook... while I'm posting these holiday sketches I'm trying to get my house, and after that my studio, in order so I can get back to 'work' (though I can't think of it as work :o). My daughters took turns to house- and pet-sit while we were away and if I tell you that I first had to clean the vacuum cleaner before I could vacuum, wash the mop before I could mop, and rinse out the washing machine and dishwasher before... well you get an idea of what a mess we are in! The studio has become a bit of a general dumping ground, I'm going to have to assert myself there again - and then I might get to making plans for the New Year - by which time it'll probably be February!

Oh I do like to be beside...
This whole vacation I was struck by the many striations (striata?) of every vista - sea, land and sky - almost like handwriting across the landscape. There were lots of clouds all the time, probably causing the horizontal bands and streaks on every surface.
