I have yet to get to core of blogging – really should be blogging more when busy not leave it unblogged. Oops.
The exhibition at the Chapel went well, most enjoyable, sold a couple of pieces, nattered alot and met a lot of people. That feels like ancient history now. The existance of an artist seems to be very complex, there is no single timeline, no single goal or agenda. It is the time of year when I want to hibernate, or at least eat crumpets ( with ginger jam) (or even marmite).
I am trying to focus on getting work together for an open call and for Open Studios while trying to get little things made for my selling days in the Christmas market – ha hah- low wattage lightbulb moment- use the offcuts and samples to make badges etc. I reaaly don’t want to go down the crafty maker route – I am a thwarted perfectionist- the role doesn’t sit comfortably. So the badgey things are quirks and favours, a little daft, a bit me and very not precise. Spot the ones that were originally trying out ways of showing reflections of autumn leaves, frosty rough ground and landscape as colour.And the birds- I think I was having a Rococo moment. The mini trees are try outs for some transfer designs. At the moment I may like them more than the ‘proper’ work….
and as for the main piece still part done- feel like leaving it in baby bio overnight to see what grows. Need to find the sharp tweezers and get the extra strong colour threads out.
