Last year, as you may remember, I was motivated to; create a new header for this blog, create a current self-portrait, immerse myself in the joys of journalling, illustrate a book of my own poetry (partially complete), complete a cat painting. Then this year more inspiration bouncing around in my head. Arrgh! Time to rewind!
Most of these things have not yet happened and so I have decided to take a look at each idea again. I have been out in the garden mostly, doing autumn chores under gorgeous blue skies and doing handyman things like re-painting the laundry and the fuse box, getting quotes for new blinds on certain windows - everything in our eleven year old house seems to have had a ten year expiry date!
The thing is that all these creative ideas have been swimming their way to the surface, appearing in 'bubbles' over my head for a few moments while raking leaves or digging a hole for a new plant. More still have been percolating nicely for a while. Others are just colourful sparks. The break from making art has been good.
So to start the ball rolling I have been playing with my blog header and will probably change this at whim. I hope you enjoy the new look. And as Bohemian Mom commented recently, "now, back to your art" !
