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.
