"The Healing Place"
45 x 90 cm
Acrylic, Paper and Ink on Canvas
Long time no see. I had some family issues and then I went away for a week. Now I'm back and doing the big catch up again...way behind of course but getting there.
I wanted to show you what I was playing with before I left. A friend of mine gave me a big bag of fabric odds and ends - mainly trimmings and lace which I am going to work into my paintings - nothing like a bit of added texture. She also gave me a couple of her art boxes which I then paper patchworked and added some of the trimmings to - (see the pictures below).
In the same week I finished off the painting above for Erin. Again a little bit of collage-ing and lots of doodling. There is more to come as well but first I will be finishing off several commissions and working on other projects.
I have so many ideas bubbling away its hard to get it all down at once and sometimes you have to strike while the inspiration is fresh so you carry the original spark. Other ideas sit quietly - growing daily with little attention. The good thing is it doesnt seem to dry out (!) (not yet anway) - you can always reach in and find something. Its so exciting - inspiration, creativity- when its in the flow - its in the flow.
