This is a face in my art journal drawn in ink, over water colour squirted from a spray bottle.
Lately I've been all over the place creatively, wanting to try all sorts of different things and not being able to settle on just one. This is just the way it is - so many great things out there to experience and so much fun trying to squeeze it all in!
It's been a busy time here, what with the soccer season starting and lots of things to organise on the homefront. I'm just loving our gentle autumn - soft light & easy temperatures.
I'm now the proud owner of a new sewing machine. It hasn't been taken out of it's box yet and will wait for a block of time to concentrate on re-aquainting myself with the basics. I grew up with my mother's sewing machine nearly always on the kitchen table and would often thread the machine for her, run scraps of material through & loved playing with the 'feet', bobbins and tiny tools.
With the things I learned from my mother and a textile & design course in high school I know enough to get started on my own. There are stars in my eyes about making fabric collage or a wall hanging maybe, based on one of my paintings. We'll see what happens.
