Hello, a happy new year mosaic Monday - it's a bright start to the week here.
I've been thinking about changing the format of this blog - and taking a break from mosaic Mondays. But for now at least, I am continuing on...... After all these years I still like Flickr and I value the connections I make, so with that in mind I am still sharing a few favourites via mosaics. Thanks always to my Flickr contacts and please follow links to discover more....
Today is a bank holiday here in the UK, and it's my final day away from making work. I've been busy with other work-related things over the past few days, including planning a little, writing a bit.
Shop update - next one is on Wednesday. There will be a small selection of recent work. This is work I made just before the Christmas break. I'll be updating at the usual time of 2pm.
So this week I'll begin on making new work, with no exact ideas in mind - which yes is quite a daunting prospect. That is not to say I have no ideas! I do, I have various thoughts and lots of starting points in mind. But this year I am hoping to work yet more intuitively, to go with the flow and to see where that takes me. So whilst I have materials and some thoughts on scale and colour, I am starting again and will approach each painting or drawing with the same 'starting over' approach. I want to work with a range of media including gouache, acrylics and ink.
I'm also considering making a new small selection of stitched works, of some kind. But not at this moment.
Have a good start to your week - a post sharing new work will be here tomorrow.
