Triangle Multiples

Today is the THIRD day IN A ROW that I’ve been in my beautiful studio. It feels great! I’ve made more time for it, and a free weekend has been a lovely way to ease myself into making more time for studio and creating. I have made some things I really like, and which were fun to make. Working with multiples, thinking about an exhibition / arts trail event, where I show all the ‘multiple’ work I’ve been creating. Mostly centred around the Poppy pieces, but also on other multiples, things I have collected, like these metal triangles, which were in an old frame, keeping the back on and in place. Some of them are rusting, they are very sharp, and I used some extra strong and thin double sided tape to attach them on. It seems to fix most things, although some of the objects I have created are 3D and I’m playing with a glue gun today, to test the fix of that.

 

I have started a shopping list, what do I need to make what I want to make, and have on-hand in the studio instead of being out and up and down Gloucester road shopping for big rolls of paper. Also I’m measuring up my old frames to find big paper for, or glass to fill the frames with, if it’s been smashed or used for something else.

Getting on with it

I wrote my new years resolutions early last night. Today was the first day of the rest of my life, and it feels good. up at 07.30, spent an hour writing in my diary and visualising the day ahead. Then i went to THE GYM and loved it, and this afternoon i walked for an hour around Gloucester/Cheltenham road taking in everything and really enjoying myself.

I met a nice lady called Lucy today, and infact i met another Lucy, and mistook her for the Lucy i was meeting. We met to swap shopping lists and things to do lists and had a lovely chat. She mentioned morning pages which is something i have forgotten about. Think i’ll start doing that.

AND my commitment to being an artist is obviously working because today, unlike ever before, i recieved TWO invitations to be exhibited. How great is that! I have lots of work to do and it’s exciting.
