Since I injured essential body parts required for painting, I’ve really tried hard to keep making art any way I could, otherwise, y’know, the creativity fairy will fly off and grace someone else with her presence.
So for the first couple of weeks, I carried on. Then last week, summer arrived. It really did. And I just wanted to sit in my garden, catch some rays, and think about tomatoes and sweet peas and pester my husband to cut the grass.
And here’s a thing: I enjoyed not making art. I enjoyed not being on Instagram and Facebook and Pinterest. I enjoyed not blogging.
Blogging for me is how I order the chaos within. Time to reflect, sometimes about something, often about nothing. Being in the garden, pottering around, planting up window boxes…those things sort of replaced blogging – but not you all, my blogging gang!
Honestly, I feel like I’ve had a holiday last week. And yesterday I really had that Monday back to work feeling! Anyway. I’ve spent some time catching up on domestic
bores chores and had a little tidy in my studio, which sets me up for the next phase, whatever that is. I haven’t quite decided! But I have just purchased some acrylic inks.
In other news – injuries have suddenly taken a huge leap of recovery! Hooray for that. And framing some original pieces is still happening. In fact, one of my jobs today, apart from saying hello to all of you, is to test a various shades of white paint for the frames. I limited it to four, otherwise I thought I might go insane.
Now to spend some time catching up with my wordpress feed and seeing how all the daily painting is going!
