The tidy art room
My art room is much tidier now, how nice to know exactly where everything is! I am still trying to find some time to paint. After the big tidy up, preparing tutorials, tutoring and housework once again, I feel time slipping away, almost creeping by me. Last November I finally finished this painting titled ' Silence', it is now up on my art room wall and it is one of my favourite paintings. I really wanted to create a painting that evoked the feeling of silence. It had been the plan to complete two paintings a month but since last December in which I finished two paintings I hadn't been able to complete my goal! It is OK, maybe it was in a way time to distance myself from painting. For years I have kept up a good pace creating many paintings. It is true that my neck and shoulder kept seizing up and there have been visits to the physio and osteopath as well as exercises to do. I do feel much better now, I feel there has been an improvement in my shoulder and neck. I still have to work slowly but that too is OK, why, there is no rush to do lots of paintings.
My artist friend Tamsin and I are going to have another exhibition in two years time in the library gallery which is a very large space, very modern and a good place to show paintings. We want to take our time and just see where the painting journey takes us. Ideally I would like to create more paintings like 'Silence' and I am working on another painting at the moment which has a similar look and feeling about it. I don't want to get distracted and start palette knife painting again .......!
Happy Painting to you all and hopefully I will have another painting to show you soon!
