As an artist, I spend a lot of time alone in my studio. I have a healthy appetite for solitude, so it's a place where I feel very happy. However, there are times when I wonder (.... after all, we have only a very short life on this beautiful planet) .... I wonder if my precious life-energy is being used the best way. But always, whenever doubt creeps in, I receive a note which touches and sustains me throughout my long studio days ....
This message was from Tracy a week or so ago ....
Just had to say thank you for the seriously quick delivery but also please thank Mel for the fantastic A2 print - it is a present for my mother-in-law who will be 87, used to go to Polzeath every year where she owned a house and, up until a few years ago, rode her horse every day. She always wanted to ride on the beach so I think she will love this picture.
Hope you are all well.
