A minimal post here, only one image, and it’s rather plain too. I’ve decided I was hanging on to a couple of projects that I had started some time ago, and that I had lost enthusiasm for them. One was the garden pieces I had thought of using for the Orientated shows, but they weren’t inspiring me enough to really want to do them; they were started the year before last. And as all textile artists know you need deep down enthusiasm, as this is real labour intensive work.
The other was the potentially large Flowerpecker piece. I hope this may be a book at some point instead, but I have a queue of books in my head and I’ll do the one that excites me first. As I’m still finishing the recycled work I’m not sure what that will be.
So I took all the gubbins off the walls, which left the room quite minimal-ish and a little echo-y. I imagine something will go on them soon, but I’m not sure what. A couple of the previously mentioned under the table projects were consolidated or dumped too. I’ve been having a de-cluttering sort of year, and now it’s moved into the work space. I must say it does feel good.
I taught the group at Avoncroft Arts Centre again yesterday, and so stupidly forgot to take any pictures of their great work. I suspect this was because I was doing too much talking. Hopefully when they finish their pieces I will receive e mails and can feature the work.
I have blogged on the SiXand Friends blog too, about time I did, I’ve been leaving the others to do all the work.
I was so tempted to draw all over the walls though.
