OK Enough is enough! It’s been too long since my last post. I’ve had a few changes lately which has meant pulling out some old paintings, organising art stuff and documents etc. The tacky unglamorous side of art. It was then that I realised what the original purpose of this blog was – someone wanted to buy a painting, I had no website and my storage system was pretty much non-existent.
So I began the laborious task of putting each painting up, making notes on series but then I got a little excited. Instead of scribbling notes about exhibitions in my sketchbooks, I began blogging. It was a huge worldwide scribble pad that visitors could like.
I helped friends set up their blogs, began making art quizzes and photographing. In the sorting I have come across paintings I had forgotten and sketches that brought back memories of places and people.
I haven’t blogged for a while, my life has taken a turn recently. I miss blogging, I miss painting and yesterday I could feel the desperate need for drawing returning. I don’t know if that means I am getting better or trying to fill a need. Either way – charcoal and gouache is a good remedy and a nice way to scribble on my world-wide sketchbook.
