Made a school boy’ error that caused me to be 4 days overdue in sending a customer order. Did not update my postal preferences for custom orders. Giving myself no breathing space to create a screen printed concertina journal from scratch. (Whilst holding down a full time ‘second job’). It has been gruelling…I have loved it and loathed it at the same time. Loved creating…loathed my ‘second job’ getting in the way of a very tight deadline.
Now I can breathe easy cos just sent the order to Canada. Just hope customer is not too peeved at delay.
Now off to let Etsy know package has been dispatched. Yay me-ish.
When I feel out of sorts …sketching is the only thing that makes sense.
Last week I lost a loved one….mama (my mum/in-law) who was an absolute gem. Still trying to make sense of life…and all that circle of life s**t that I keep hearing…seemingly to console me doesn’t help much. I know we all die sometime but I miss mama and pointing out the obvious does not diminish my loss.
Sketching her has helped…Itotally get why art Therapy heals.
Rest in peace darling mama.
Working on set of paintings…love the thread of association running through this set…resilience in the face of adversity…or so it seems at the moment.
Mixed media (work in progress-ish)… once mounted on canvas that should be it!!! It’s minimalist but that’s it. Titled Autumn or rather ‘fall’. Still undecided.
Mixed media on canvas board titled ‘come what may’…kinda where I am at the moment…finding inner strength in the face of life!
Work in progress…. (mixed media)
…untitled at the moment but about the beauty in stillness. I’m learning from flowers that I have basically put through the wringer!…and they are still standing.
Seriously curious to see what this looks like when dry and cured.
