I'm not brave enough to post a video yet. I'm working on it. Here's my view in the studio. Lots of new canvases and frames and three nearly completed pictures. I'm still excited from another sale. My haughty little goat found her home! It is wonderful to meet people who appreciate my work.
A frame and a quotation from Jung
I am experimenting with frames. Small changes with accumulative effect. Some paintings feel more comfortable in black. My wise Andean crone is one. She is hard to photograph with glare and shadow. She is better in the flesh.....
A visit from the talented Margaret Dunlop was a welcome treat today. She brought some crafts with which to work and stayed most of the afternoon. Her work is wonderful. Perhaps she will join the Makers? I should have taken lots of pictures of her work....
With her encouragement I made changes to the pergola and framed a few more canvases.
My computer is back from it's short hospital stay. Thank you MCC in Galgorm. Hopefully it will keep going a while longer.
Curleybackey Pig is complete unless she stays because nothing is safe here.....
New canvases are making me itch in anticipation. I have the large canvas with three goats. No not the Billy Goats Gruff. Three nannys. I haven't decided quite what the first one is eating. The second goat has her nose beneath the first's ear. The third goat has the second's ear in her mouth. Any ideas?
I have another of Fred's donkeys on the easel. She's pretty.
I have a human on the go (secret...) and one I'm planning (also secret).
I also have a beautiful german swan from some of my talented big brothers photos. It's the only small one so it might get mentioned next .
My smiley curly pig from Cullybackey
She's not finished yet and I'm excited to get to work on her today. I have to change my jeans first. I made a lovely green goo for breakfast from things in the garden. it wasn't quite green because the raspberries made it swamp coloured....however i was so enjoying it that i dropped some over my clean trousers. That will teach me not to lick the dish......not!
So I woke up in the middle of the night and instead of reaching for meditations on my ipod, I got up and came to the studio.
I spilt paint on the floor before I began to paint and gaily walked quinacridone magenta everywhere. When I realised it looked like a murder scene. Then I spattered green paint over the white walls before dropping my palette. Silly goat me.
