Happy New Year to all UDAS members. Hopefully 2023 will be a bit more tranquil with some good news items and not just depressing ones.
I have been conspicuous by my absence I’m afraid. I developed anxiety and depression in early Summer 2021 and really toiled to rise above it. However with lots of help and the patience of family and a few close friends I am feeling much more like myself. It has been the opposite of fun as some of you who have had similar experiences will know.
I hadn’t picked up a paintbrush or pencil until a month ago and went back to my ‘go to’ medium- pastel! this is one I’ve just finished - it’s of the boathouse on the Queen’s Loch in Birse, a stone’s throw from our house.
(Sennelier pastels and velour pastel paper.)
My thanks to the rest of the committee for running UDAS so efficiently and well ☺️
