This is a catch up post full of pretty summer photos I’ve taken lately. A bit random and colourful like myself 🙂 ok maybe just random..
Ireland is having weather commitment issues at the moment.. it wants both summer and winter in its life at the same time.. Hence we have been enjoying blasting sun, followed by torrential downpour. This means summer dresses and wet ground….
But hey that’s why we are so green and pretty here, and at least it’s not just rain. There is a good bit of sun! You ain’t Irish if you haven’t experienced that sweet joy of changing into dry clothes after been caught in a sun shower!
Also it means RAINBOWS. lots of rainbows! If only I could find the pot of gold that would be handy.. damn sneaky lephrachauns…
I’ve been caught out in a few this rain showers month. As any of you that read my last post ‘Out of Focus’ knows I’ve been having a little pity party the last few months as I have not been feeling great. Half is my own fault as if I felt any bit better, I ran to the gym and then promptly got sick again. Viral infections are the gift that keep on giving haha. But things they are a changing.. yeay 🙂
I decided three weeks ago to stop trying so hard to be old super active Carmel and focus on the little wins and getting back to being A1. I may not be able to get out running but I’ve gotten out for a walk as much as possible and cleaned up my (Pringles, popcorn and malteaser) diet…
Have you tried out the girls recipes? These made me feel much better when I wanted some nice grub.. Behold my attempt at Rachels Pancakes..
If you are following me on Instagram (@artbycarmelbehan) or Snapchat (@artbycam) you will see that my days of late are basically a montage of porridge, fruit, frittata, fruit, walk, sleep and repeat. Oh and that desk job in there somewhere but we won’t focus on that 😛
I am in the middle of doing two painting commissions (slowest commissions I have ever done- thank you to my friend for her patience!) and two caricatures. One of these was for a competition I had on my Facebook. It is so lovely to be able to gift someone a wedding guest board for their special day. Keep posted and ill update you when its done and her day is over:)
If you want to be in with a chance to win prizes from my competitions just give me a like (www.facebook.com/artbycarmelbehan)
Happy to be feeling better of a Monday so I am looking forward to getting back to my daily sketches and all the fun of art, I have a week off next week so hoping to get a good bit done then- if catching up on Game of Thrones doesn’t get in the way lol
I hope you all had a lovely summer. Thank you so much for your kind words and thoughtful messages on my last post! What a lovely little world this blog world is!
