I've spent the last week in the picturesque Blue Mountains, west of Sydney, staying with the in-laws and eating pork, bacon and ham.
I hope everyone had a great Christmas break, and that it made you at least as happy as this little chap (the young Dux, aka 'Assault', to differentiate him from his twin sister 'Battery').
The down side about being away from the Man Cave is of course that I haven't been painting anything, and already feel twitchy and irritable as a result. This is exacerbated this year by seeing my ranking in Curt's Painting Challenge steadily slipping from 6th to 13th at the time of writing, although it has been great to see the wonderful and diverse contributions going up on Curt's blog. We're heading back tonight, so I'll be back with a vengeance.
Meanwhile, here's a recap of what I painted for the comp and haven't yet put up on my blog.
Miss Lily and the Girls,
Some German Heavy Metal,
and some more citizens for Hurricane.
Best wishes to you all!
