Yeah, I'm a lizard. I like the heat. But, Jesus motherfuck, it gets hot in the studio in the arvo at the moment. Hot and stuffy. Even with the french doors wide open (yes, strictly, that should be 'French windows', but too bad), the air doesn't get down to my working area.
It gets stupidly hot down there. We have to replace the windows at some stage – with ones that open. It's good for drying, especially when you're doing watercolours. In fact, the watercolours can dry a little too quickly.
And this is fucking November. What the hell's it going be like in February!?! Well, hell will be the operative word.
Whinge, whinge, fucking whinge. I've got my great studio back, and already I'm whinging about it.
What a cunt.
