A GOOD DAY...

Been alone for most of it, job application posted, blog updated and a little screen printing!
 
Liked this and then slipped with screen,...







OUTCOMES OF SCREEN PRINTING WORKSHOP

The students who worked in this workshop over the last six week have been able to take home a bug ( Design in Nature) tea towel and some beautiful silk paintings. The black outline  individual to each student then circles in red and  bug shapes in yellow.  I enjoyed this and learned youngsters are afraid of over printing! Students also enjoyed it to and want to sign up for more..." Miss maybe t-shirts?". Think there are a few mom's getting t towel gifts this Easter










.....

A little update

I have been wanting to do regular posts and start a more exciting blog for people to follow, but so far job hunting and applications skills audit ect have taken a priority. I have been painting and it just draws me in, applications and forms are so boring...I really like the latest piece and where it has gone/turned out...not sure where it will go next we will see.
Used to have this logic/theory of drawing something re drawing and redrawing then drawing from memory because the drawing then is simplified to the strongest of bits and those that left an impression on you. This buck done like this is part of the old and very much part of the new post degree more rounded, pattered....design like?

Been so worried to work in acrylic as thought I would go back to the  past way and blue....(recent fox canvas) but okay moving forward.

Crazy times....

It has been awhile but thing here have been mad. I have turned 50 whoop whoop, rolled into it feeling very positive, it's  only a number but a good opportunity to/ excuse to shake things up, well this was the thought at the beginning of the month...shake things up!
Its all turned completely upside down actually on full power spin currently. I was offered voluntary redundancy beginning of this week and took that yesterday, not a good financial decision just a gut feeling of now or never. Handed that in and left work,  the car  packed in...when I finally got home Rebecca (daughter) has taken a new job...more pay less hours...
I have work ready to go on-line and want to start international shipping.....

Kudu finished and on wall it was intended for

An indulgence on my part.  had to hang it or I was going to start adding something, when not on this wall the darker right side as facing it seemed too bare. I think it sits well here.
