I’m back! Back to my weekly updates – this is the first for 2022. Hopefully another exciting year for me and my pratice. Would love to hear your thought on these videos – what do you want to know more about, want me to share , show you? Or are just enjoying my random train of thoughts?
I’m feeling so much better this week, thank you for all your get well messages in response to last week’s update. This week as promised, I’m sharing a great Black Friday offer. There’s 20% off across my online shop – if you haven’t got the code, then send me a message on Instagram and I’ll share it with you.
I’ve had a busy week this week but sadly not busy being creative! However I did have time to join a really interesting webinar on copyright as part of the New Platform Art mentoring programme, and I did make another sale which is always good news.
This week is all about dreams! Not my dreams specifically, this week I share a little story about someone else’s dream that involved me and and endless stream of not the right painting. In real life this dream has had a happy ending with one of my paintings heading off to a new home in The Netherlands.
My goodness, this is my 50th video update! Can’t quite believe that I’ve been doing these for over a year now. They really have become a bit of a habit for me and I hope you enjoy them too! This week I share some news about a new mini exhibition of my work that is showing in ScotiaVisuals gallery space in Glasgow for the next week.
This week I share some news about a home visit from a collector and also share my joy at getting to a live ballet performance.
This week I reflect on some endings and beginnings. Like so many others I was saddened to hear about the passing of Dame Elizabeth Blackadder, and so I couldn’t not mention that sad news. Her legacy will last for many, many years to come. On the beginnings side, my life drawing classes started again this week and I share how they have inspired some landscape work. So in the video I share how a couple of pieces are beginning.
Earlier this week I share a mixed media piece called Bass Rock on Instagram. It got a lot of love! So this week I thought I’d share a bit about how the work came together and how sometimes the end point of a piece of work is not what you expected when you start it.
After a couple of weeks “off camera” I’m back with my weekly updates. This week I share some of what I’ve been up to over the past couple of weeks, including the thinking and planning side of being an artist. Would love to hear your thoughts on what I’ve been sharing too, so we can extend the conversation.
This week, I reflect on the one year anniversary of the UK going in to lockdown, but on a more positive note share news about the fabulous new look SSA website and my contribution to their fantastic 4 x 4 x 4 project. So 2 videos for the price of one this week!
