I woke up this morning having slept well with no cold. Deep joy. 18th February (Saturday) is hand in for the Lynn Painter Stainers Prize which seems to have taken over from the Threadneedle (having taken just 4 years to go trendy) as the major figurative art prize. So today I am going to paint the messy desk in my office to fit in a frame in the studio. It is going to win the prize. Well it is a bit unlikely but you have to think that. The likely outcome is I get in a tizzy and finish the day grumpier than I started yesterday.
