Happy Monday.... as mosaics happen, this is a very curious one and I hope you enjoy exploring the textures and ideas here - many thanks to the artists and photographers featured.
The week starts cold and blank-skied. There is a vase of pretty stocks on our windowsill and they really do make a difference. Their smell is that spicy old-fashioned garden smell... sweet.
Days ahead - I had planned to re-open my bigcartel space, offer new 'still' paintings - but have had a change of heart and instead will be offering a couple in my etsy shop and holding on to a couple for a little while.... I am just waiting for postcards (details of paintings) to arrive from the printers and then they will be 'in'...
A change of heart is not a bad thing, you know. I am trying not to be so rigid and ease up on too many plans and projects. Let the possibilities in this summer.
Summer solstice this week - time to make a 'warm and welcome' change to things, for myself and for this blog. So from mid-week on you may see things a little differently here. I am going to try sharing an image or two every day, something you won't find elsewhere, not on flickr, just for here. Will be glimpses into my little world and things that catch my eye. A blog can be so many different ideas, and I have increasingly wished to move away from 'plugging it' to sharing my world a little more..... I hope this makes some sense.
I'm very grateful to everyone who has purchased something from my shop recently. I know these are difficult and unknowing times. Understanding a desire to purchase is not always a possibility. I try to buy handmade from others when I can too. Several copies of my latest zine 'Violet Goodenough' have already been sent to readers, and I have had some very encouraging feedback. Thank you. Over the coming weeks I shall be offering a wider range of prints and other items in my shop and I hope you will enjoy taking a look.
Have a very good week ahead and more soon...
