Happy 2013 :)
Another new year. Am I tempted to plan the shedding of the dark things, the sad things, the difficult things, the unchangeable things and somehow be transformed into a perfect shiny thing...?
Well, not really, when I think into it. They're part of me. And they inspire paintings, music, and provide the deep shadow to the sunnier moments. Richness. So, just a bit of tweaking...been stalking Mr Alcohol Dependency with malicious intent and now is the time.
So much stuff planned this year! Lots of things art, music, challenge, festival and fun on the horizon: painting in Devon in February, McTears in Glasgow in February, Artists & Illustrators Exhibition in London, April exhibition at Studio 61, teaching art to the Alderney Art Club in May, June exhibition at the Mulberry Tree in Swanage, and various art workshops, the first of which is next week. Gotta bake some cake!! Also starting my next commission tomorrow - a 120cm oil of Llandwyn beach in Wales. Yes please.
Here's a lovely little painting by my very good artist friend Nansy Ferrett :) We are teeny, and the universe is huge.
