Another Mosaic for you... the last November mosaic .... It is dark and raining, cold and windy... All those not so pleasant things about November happening at the same time on a Monday morning. So it is good to be cheered by the inspiration above! Thanks to all the artists and photographers for sharing their work, via my Flickr contacts.
This week: there will be no shop updates. As you may know I am not updating my shops until the New Year. I'm working on new designs and ideas for 2010. Expect to see it all coming together in January:) All I will say is 2010 is going to be a year focused on daily practice. Not just one medium. Words are going to be a prominent feature. Ok I am saying enough for now!
I have artwork available now in both my Etsy and bigcartel shops! Do take a look, thank you. I will endeavour to send your package out asap so that it arrives as speedily as possible.
Thanks to Morna for helping with my banners:)
This week I'll share with you here some past work and new ideas. I'll also be posting a new poem over at Nevering.
I would like to find time to make Christmas gifts and decorations this year. Not sure if I will find all the time I need. It is always busy here in the Nest of Threads:) But I will try.
This week's colour is: orange. A colour of energy and strength. It's a colour I've often avoided in my work, to be honest. But I am realising now how I am inspired by its warmth and spice. A colour for nesting in the dark days of Winter. I think it's about finding colours that work with the orange so that you don't feel it is too Autumnal. I like pink with orange:) I never thought I would type that but my colour palette is brightening and expanding.... maybe this recent painting in my November painted journal has helped me rethink colour....
Listening to: something completely different from the usual gentle stuff.... we've been listening to Alice in Chains new album Black Gives way to Blue. It is grungy rock at its finest. A superb album from this band after a long break.... Yes I have eclectic music taste.
Reading: Still slowly reading the latest Peter Ackroyd novel.... slowly due to time just flying by and so much going on lately....
Watching: I'm enjoying Miranda on BBC2. On tonight.
Have a very good week x
