Open Studios Coming Up


Sunday, 27 August 2017

Out this morning at Boundary Way Allotments sketching to build references for the art I'm involved in thanks to Moya Lloyd and her wonderful Arts Council funded project in Wolverhampton. Read more about it here: 

Met lots of people there who were curious and I ended up with lots of fabulous fruit and veg to take home.
 Thank you Michael Phillips and his Spanish pal. Also lovely to see Kevin and Jo visiting for the first time.
#livingabundantly #senseofplace17 - not even day 1 of sense of place project but too excited not to post!!
This painting has pen and pastel in it - the pastels nearly melted in the sun though!

Personal Challenge Result

Sometimes it’s a good idea to have a personal obligation to yourself to show up to a challenge every day. As a self employed artist who is selling internationally it’s easy to stay within the style your clients see as you.
It is important though to continue to develop and exercise the creative muscle out of the normal zone. Hence today I have finished a personal challenge to paint a small landscape every day for thirty days. I set the challenge publicly so that I was accountable. Some days it was uncomfortable to show up to the easel. Some days I had to paint at 5am to get it done. But I did it. 
Today is the last day. I can truly say I have developed over the short time and experimented in ways I may not normally when working on commissions.
….and funnily enough I have sold three of them completely unintentionally. I wouldn’t have guessed that would happen.
Here’s to setting slightly uncomfortable goals!
