Some news …

Today, I am not in the Library its a holiday and so a snapshot would not do! It is quiet in BlogLand its seems that the world is on holiday. So I thought I would take this opportunity to share some news;  it is pretty insignificant to most people but what the heck they are away from their internet connection and won’t read it anyway.

I think today I became a print maker!

I began practicing 2 or 3 years ago with erasers and even became quite creative and adventurous. Truthfully, while there was  a degree of artistry I did need to address the deficiencies!  It had been 50 years since I had drawn a picture. So I found an art teacher who took me back to basics; to schoolgirl stuff and now beyond.  I began to draw and paint and who knows the future.  Meanwhile, I continued to develop the printing and now working with wood and lino and again there are more options to explore.  

Now, I am in a position to find an Open Studio and a group (s) where I can continue learning, also showing and sharing my work and new found knowledge.  Not from  academic place but a place of greed and urgency.  While I honour and respect those with the academic background,  mine resurrected from the wood shavings of my father’s boat building workshop needs a space too.  

Last night I showed my a sample of my work to a small local group in Reading; not only did they accept me as  a member but they gave me advice and guidance as my next steps to join larger and more influential groups.  This will mean I have to show a more distinct portfolio, a CV and an letter of intent … so today I begin a another leg of my journey.
