Hi everyone… surprise!
I’m just posting to let you know that I’m starting a new online art journal to record some of my doings…
You can find me writing now at 3littlepears
It’s been wonderful to take a break, to step back and become tactile. I’m very much enjoying it.. and thought I would document bits and pieces of my experiments and discoveries in my new online journal, as well as in my ‘real’ journals.
Perhaps I’ll see you there 🙂
At the beginning of this year, I decided it was time to pick up my pencils and brushes again.. it’s been too long and part of that (for me) is keeping a journal with ideas, sketches, doodles etc…
Starting out this year, I am very rusty again!! …and I need to be ok with that as I’ve taken a big break, but I’m loving being back, playing with pencil and paint.
I thought I’d share some ‘boots and all’ stuff of what I’m doing or being inspired by and I want to keep a record here too – this blog was (and is) an arts journal 🙂 ..including my photography.
I’m just having a bit of rusty fun so far.. we’ll see where this takes me..or not.. but for now it makes me happy!
Objects.. and ideas..
‘Home is Wherever I am with You” – I love this saying!
Vinegar bottle study
Finding inspiration in ‘the ordinary’..
..and inspiration from other sources..
..and playing / experimenting..
That’s it for now… 🙂
It’s been a while since I picked up my pencil, but yesterday I sat and sketched for a while. It’s very nice to be drawing again… I’m fiddling with this one as an idea for a watercolour painting… no idea if I’ll go ahead, but I like to trial ideas in my journal for compositions, colour etc., so it’s a beginning.
First sketch of the year… Woohoo!
I found a photo of this boat (not my own) and it’s a very worn old fishing boat, I think… love all the texture!
