This week I share a bit about a mentoring session I took part in early in the week. It’s really made me think about what it is that I am actually doing as an artists. My interactions with my environment and the assemblages and entanglements that inform my work. I share a bit about the SaltSpace members show which runs until 26 September, and I have a piece in.
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 reached a bit of a milestone on Instagram, 500 followers! I also share a bit about how I divide up my time as an artist, it’s not all painting! I also had a enjoyed a bit of unexpected bit of opera in the park.
This week has been another week of “other” work, however I can finally reveal more about the secret commission I’ve mentioned in the past few weeks. It’s in its new home and has been a wonderful surprise anniversary present. I also got another sold painting back from the framers and I’m really pleased with how that frame has anchored the image. Watch to find out more
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!
This week I reflect a bit on International Women’s Day which happened (as it always does) earlier this week on 8 March. I also share a few thoughts and questions about NFTs – and the fact that one sold for $70 earlier this week. Would you invest in a digital art work?
I’m feeling much brighter about life in general this week – maybe spring has finally sprung! I also share a bit about one of the best books I have read so far this year. It made me think “big thoughts” about lots of things, including art.
This week I’ve done something a bit different to share some of my recent work.
