The Invisible Circus and a New Year!
Goodness, it has been awhile, hasn't it!?
Well greetings one and all who visit here and a wonderful happy new year to you. I hope the last few months have been treating you well. I suppose I should re-cap...
The opening went very well. John Corless opened it, said lovely things and was very encouraging and genuinely liked and engaged with the work. (He likes tigers, so that was a plus). I had a good turn out, and everyone who I really wanted to be there came, so that was a nice surprise.
I was given new insights by the audience, saw things in the work that I wasn't aware of and finished up with a little spring in my step, ready to tackle the next phase.
It was a wonderful experience and something that I will be looking back on with fondness for many years to come.
Plans for this year...
I have a few little things in the pipeline. Some new things I want to experiment with and try. There are a few ideas, motifs, themes that I would like to flesh out and pin down more. And as a little side project or resolution, I have to write and doodle something everyday into my journal (which I had given up doing for various reasons)...which I am really enjoying. I also want to do more indepth research into current/past artists in order to get a better grasp on what it is I am actually saying and how it fits into everything else.
I have a drawing I started before the new year which is going SO slowly, and a new sketch I'm doing on wood (we'll see how that goes) but I'm feeling inspired, energized and I just wish I could spend every waking moment at it...I'm sure I'm not the only one.
To conclude, to those other creative folk out there, and all those just peeking through the curtain, I wish you endless inspiration, health and contentment for this year, and many blessings to come.
