Hello, a happy October Monday to you - oh a wet chilly start here, yep the 'typically unsettled' October weather has arrived. But you never know when it will all change again, that's British weather for you.... Thanks always to the artists and photographers featured in this week's mosaic. Please do follow links to discover more.
And so to this week.... I am working on both painting and stitch, and am finding so many new ideas come about, from one to the other. A week goes by quickly at the moment as I explore my to-do list and work quietly on a range of projects. Not everything can be accomplished in just a few days, so there are some longer-term projects that I have yet to complete (or share here).That's my wordy way of saying: there's always more to come!
This week on Thursday it is National Poetry Day here in the UK. Of course poetry is a year-round 'event' for me, as I am often scribbling notes or at least thinking about poems that might come about.... Though I may not always write a poem each day or week, I still consider myself 'a poet', in my own quiet way. This week I hope to create a few stitched poetry-themed pieces. Perhaps a few new poetry hearts and possibly an improvised piece or too. It's interesting for me to consider how poetry can be more than printed words on the page. I used to think that I had to make a choice between making visual art or writing but the more I work at both, the more I see how tangled together they are, happily so....
Expect to see new painted books, paintings and embroidery in my shop this week. I am aiming to update at 2pm on Wednesday. (I try to give a time, but this is always subject to change, thanks for your understanding.)
Thanks always for visiting here and taking the time to catch up with what's happening in my creative world. More soon. Have a good start to your week. I hope to share a preview of some new work tomorrow.
