my drawing desk (via Instagram)
Hello, another October Monday and the week started out sunny here. I looked up at the hawthorn tree in our little front garden and noted how all the leaves are curled and brown. I watching a blue tit and noted what a throaty little song he had.
This week I am working on quite a variety of projects. Hoping to make a start on a new larger embroidery piece I've been thinking about.
And I'm especially happy to let you know about my forthcoming NOVEMBER POSTCARDS. Yes, during November my Bigcartel shop will be taken over and 'filled to the brim' with postcard-size original artworks. This is my opportunity to offer you a smaller modestly-priced artwork - there will be work representing many of the different ideas and media I have explored over the years and continue to explore: figurative gouache sketches, collages, abstract paintings, botanicals, landscapes and more. Something for everyone.
I'll be sharing here a few little glimpses at some of the postcards as they evolve on my desk - but to see the selection you will need to wait, just a little while, until November 1st. There will be a broad range to see from the 1st and I'll be topping up with new postcards through November.
Just a note to also say, I have hinted here (and over at nevering) about a possible future zine (or three), but please know there's no plan to publish one until next year at the earliest. I'm continuing to work on ideas.
Thanks always for reading here and have a good start to your week.
