Yes, I’m making the attempt!
I have been attending an art class for the last eight weeks and this piece was an assignment. We’ve been learning all about mixing colours and the challenge this time was to use only two secondary colours and paint some leaves.
I have paint on my pyjamas. This could possibly be because I was painting in my pyjamas, my new pyjamas. Also because it is four minutes to midnight.
But I am a happy chappy today regardless, or even perhaps because I have paint on my pyjamas.
Guess what I received in the mail today…
Life has been busy of late, but there has been art. There have also been business developments, a piece of artwork I can’t share as I’ve submitted it to a competition, and various explorations in both bubblepainting and Pollock-esque paint delivery. More on those later, but now…The Squid Report!
The other arty thing that happened this week was me being suddenly struck by an undefined inspiration that ended up with my youngest daughter falling off the couch.
It has been a week of calamari here in my studio. All other projects have been suspended by my current obsession with this giant squid painting.
Met an artist, listened to an illustrator, ate dinner with an arty friend, received an arty book and painted a giant squid. Yeah, a very arty week.
To celebrate the fact that my studio has just had a darn good tidy up (except my art desk, that is still pending), here are a few piccies to prove that it was once tidy before I trash it again 😀
