Here’s to a New Creative Year of prints, drawings, paintings, books, 3D and more..Four particularly lovely things to look forward to:
This month I start contributing to Beautiful Beasts, an art blog shared with my friend Sue.
I will be developing ideas for the Dragon Puppet.
More printmaking will be happening over at PrintDaily
And I am getting ideas, research and sketches together for an Indian inspired piece.
Four particularly lovely things from the past few days:
Seeing the truly inspiring Shunga Exhibition at the British Museum (which is, without a doubt, my favourite place). Sex and superb printmaking is a heady mix.
Dining delightfully on delicious Dim Sum in Chinatown.
Watching Small Town Murder Songs with the extraordinarily sublime soundtrack from Bruce Peninsula.
Watching Lucinda Williams performing Joy from quite a few years ago..sheer Joy.
And as it’s a time for resolutions I have a few art related ones; to get back to sketching, to get out to more different locations to sketch, to get the oils out and, finally, this year, to get a long overdue website up. I did make a start today.
It is going to be a busy year..
White Hart: reduction lino print with gilded leaves. see printdaily
A sighting of a White Hart was considered a good omen by some.
Let it be so!
A Happy New Year to All!
