School is back. The house is quiet. And tidy. The summer is truly here and we are all melting.
I’m waiting for a delivery of art supplies, including cradled panels, so I can start putting down the first stages of my Dartmoor series.
In the meantime though I’ve enjoyed not rushing. Just spending time doing a lot of thinking, reading, and journaling what thoughts I have.
In particular I’ve been paying attention to my preferences, artistically speaking. Really narrowing down what I enjoy looking at or doing is useful. Of course it might change- in fact, I expect it to.
One of my challenges is to marry up approaches that are the opposite ends of the spectrum, and thinking about how I might utilise those things in my work more coherently.
In the meantime these two have been trimmed and sent off for a fundraiser of postcard art.
