Sun on Monday …

October 10, 2016

Its Monday morning and there is  a beautiful day ahead.  Those who follow my blog and my reflections on the previous week, will be aware of my fluctuations between moods; from self-pitying junk to self-contractionary claptrap and back again.  At work I have a ‘do I, don’t I retire?’ attitude to my paid employment, My art, its practice and resultant works  go from love to hate, then there is the lack of hair ‘shall I, shan’t I bare all ?’  and then the cold wind makes the decision; hat!  My mental state is by its nature is bipolar and while not connected directly to any of the above is managed better if my life is grounded. So, where am today? Yes , beautiful and the weekend was good.  Having had a successful exhibition at the Rising Sun Art Centre where Book Face took part in the celebrations for Reading Year of Culture. With that and Reading in Reading, we had a two day show celebrating book arts, it is an annual event and over the last few years it as become a spectacular occasion with of course lots of works related to the production of books plus selected music and the reading of poetry.  It was my intention to read a recent poem but ducked out and I do regret that a little.  However, on a positive note, I showed a collection of art books created while in Brazil and since. I launched my book, The Teapot at sea  and sold some copies and other related materials and even works ‘not for sale’. So very happy today, especially as during that time I collected my press, received a super imposing stone and the sun is shining …

I will expect a little of a slump from this place but will hit the floor running when I prepare for the next project.

Meanwhile I would like to thank those who supported me at the weekend and the all at the Rising Sun Arts Centre … where there is lovely hub of volunteers gunning for the likes of me getting a leg up in art world … when there is so much stacked against us, whether it is in our minds or simply under the restraints of austerity.

So happy Monday.
