I have been flitting between mixed media and jewellery this week and loving every minute, but I think I'll stick to the paper and illustrations this weekend and then get down to businessey things on Monday. I was about to pack all my papers and paint away this evening but I got a quick visit from Miss L with lovely new brushes, so I'll need to try them all out. Thanks Missy!
A few months ago my bo was unpacking the car having just finished refurbishing someone's kitchen and was making a pile of materials to take to get recycled, when I spied this meter piece of hardboard. I knew I could use it for something and asked him if he could saw it up for me into small squares and rectangles. So on Wednesday night I began transfering some of my recent sketch book pages onto them.
I have enjoyed working on this series so much that I am getting very little sleep. I just can't seem to switch off at the moment which is such a buzz. I am beginning to understand my creative cycle and just work with it. I seem to have a quiet time of doodling, designing and then playing, which is followed by an almost frenzied splurge of production. At the moment I am in the midst of a frenzie, and have a very messy studio to prove it!
My bo is always so understanding of how I work and has been so patient these last two weeks while I have been in hibernation covered in PVA and paint, so this evening I promised him my undivided attention. We have had lovely dinner and are now watching "The Puffy Chair", and I have sneeked a few minutes in blogland while he take Pablo out for a walk.
Hope you all have a lovely weekend x
