I'm having lunch in Paris!!!

I tried a new hairstyle on my girls last night... a short crop type thing. I am liking the colour combinations of this piece, I have never used dark blue as a dress colour before and I think it works quite well. I showed my family last night and Hannah said if she saw it somewhere she wouldn't recognise it as a Katherine Quinn. It has got me thinking about how my work is changing and whether it is a good thing or not?... Stuart said it isn't a good thing or a bad thing it is just a thing that has happened.

As I have enlarged my girls over the last month (why I have felt compelled to do this I am not too sure, it just happened one day). As they have grown I've needed to put more detail into their faces, therefore their look has changed. But I do think there is still that vague Katherine Quinn stare that my girls sometimes tend to have. I am ok with the change so far and am enjoying experimenting with what is happening.

On other news... as the title of this post states I am having lunch in Paris!!! The tickets are being purchased today and we go on the 8th April. We are leaving from Auckland and going to Sydney then Singapore for a fuel stop and then stopping in Frankfurt. From there we will catch a fast train to Paris for lunch... and then on to England, Kent to be exact to stay with Stuart's family. Ben and I were practicing saying "Oh my" on the way to work today as we contemplate flying to the other side of the world...

I think change is good! It means that you are growing as an artist, and that is a wonderful thing!

Lucky lady! Lunch in Paris then off to England! Oh, I would love to travel to Europe again.

wow you must be so excited about your trip. That is so cool! :)

I really like your new girl too. It's definitely a Katherine Quinn girl, one who's allowed us to get to know her a little better!

Oh, how exciting! It amazes me how long it takes you to fly to Europe - that's quite a trek! But how fun to have lunch in Paris and then on to England. You'll so love it!!

I love you paintings - they have such innocence about them! And your style is changing from wonderful to wonderful. ;) I realized today that I wasn't following your blog yet and didn't know how that happened - I remedied it immediately! :) Silke
