So much has been happening with The Art Boat this summer, that I’ve neglected to keep up with my blog. Isn’t that always the way? Just when I have oodles to write about, I don’t have time to write it.
One of the best bits of the this summer is the fact that after months of indecision about whether to keep the studio at Goyt Mill in Marple, I have come to the conclusion that I would be silly not to. As soon as the decision was made, it was like the fog was lifted from my brain and I have such plans! Isn’t it funny how big decisions can effect absolutely everything you do and as soon as your road is clear everything becomes so much easier.
A knock on effect of keeping the studio is that I now have a place to run the workshops I have been thinking about. I’ll be keeping these to small groups of 3-5 people. The first one will be an introduction to creative acrylics and will take place on Saturday 19th October. All materials and free lunch provided. Just get in touch through my contact form for more details and how to sign up (link at bottom)
Another exciting event is that I am taking part in a London Art Fair. Roy’s Art Fair will be held at the Truman Bewery on Brick Lane. A first for me and a big step. I’ve met the organisers and some of the other artists and I’m so looking forward to it. I’ll add a link at the bottom for free ticket details.
I’ve been working on some new pieces to take to Roy’s Art Fair. Canal Bridge Holes are an absolute fascination of mine and provide an endless source of inspiration. The framing provided by the structure of the bridge makes the scene viewed seem like another world. These are photos of the works in progress but I’ll share the finished paintings soon!
Meanwhile, I’m still travelling, and have my last couple of canal festivals to do from the boat this year before heading back to the studio for more land-based things. Just follow the “Events” link to find out where I will be next.
I promise not to leave it so long next time!
