warm kitchen with spotty bowl - acrylics on paper
Good morning, and oops.... (I just posted a poem here instead of posting it over at nevering but have since made it all ok and everything should be in the right place). It is an overcast sort of start to the week here, early morning and there is a slight chill in the air. The days are shrinking very slightly, it is now quite dark by nine in the evening. I like this spell of time, as it is not too hot. Hope where ever you are in the world the weather and light is just okay for you and that you have been enjoying your summer (or winter).
Above is a recent still life painting. I've had a few false starts and taken a few awkward moves with my painting in the last few weeks, but I feel this one is 'right', and I am glad to have worked through a few puzzles to get to where I am happier. Making any work has to be a sort of puzzle for me, there has to be something to discover, unravel, make right, tell, illuminate, discover.... It is the puzzling it out that keeps me going.
There will be a small selection of new paintings in my Bigcartel shop this Thursday 21st August.
This week, as well as continuing with painting and drawing, I am also working on new embroidery toward my Etsy shop re-opening at the end of the month. I'll let you know the day when the new selection is ready to see. I'm working on a small group of work at a time and will be updating my Etsy shop about once or twice a month over the coming months. So I am calling this first selection that I am working on AW14 part one!
Have a good week and more soon.
