I’ve made a conscious effort to curb my time on the computer (besides business) in lieu of spending more time on art making and to delve into some larger paintings. I enjoy working in the studio, taking time to contemplate the work, push myself, but more importantly be open and let things happen intuitively. Such a fine line (pun intended) to connect with that elusive balance. I also have a show so really need to work as much as time will allow.
This has been a good month for remaining inside the studio as our April has been cold, grey and rainy. I love that. I feel anticipation. April is pretty amazing and quite magic. For those of you who are complaining, look how hard April is working to bring us colour and life- lets give her a break!
I do admit that I’ve been distracted by the bird wars over nesting rites outside the studio. A grapevine ball is suspended on my porch near the door window and every year it is designated as prime nesting property. I am always a captive audience to the making of the nest. (once all the materials are delivered the lucky bird sits in the centre and uses it’s little body and back feet to shape and form, then the beak does the tucking in).
These bird diversions have slowed down my painting time a wee bit so nothing to show you yet. Instead, a few wee nests.
HAPPY EARTH DAY
please tread lightly......
