This is a corner of my submission painting which Im putting forward for the Art Show, its called ~ ‘Can we come too?’
I had an Art Day yesterday, a whole 5 hours of painting. When it got to around 3 o’clock, I came away from it for a while, I like to do this to get a sense of its direction, its so easy to lose yourself in your work and then lose track of where it was you were hoping to take it so I make a point of leaving it alone and sit it somewhere I can see it as I pass in and out of the room, this way I can see what needs changing etc.
Im going to have to try very hard this week to paint in the evenings – I have my sister and her family visiting and they are staying with my parents in a nearby village so the next week will be mostly spent with them. At the same time I cant ignore the itchy need to create and complete this painting so I resolve to dig out the daylight lamp and get busy in the evenings – lets hope I can find the energy eh?!! 🙂
The other big thing Im working on is a summer blanket, I was inspired to follow the pattern on Attic24’s blog and Im up to 14 squares. Im loving the colours, Im loving the wool – I dont know how long it will take me to finish it, Im just enjoying the journey of creating something that will be large, colourful..taken on picnics, to the beach…to wrap ourselves up in when we watch a movie…or to just fall asleep under on a rainy sunday afternoon.
A little heirloom blanket, for my little family.
If you like the look of the pattern, you can see how to do it here.
See you soon, have a scrumptious weekend!
