Time for a little update. ‘Echostains’ itself is going well, many are reading but, not many are commenting – don’t be shy come forward and show yourselves! ‘Bookstains’ my other blog is coming along alright, its early days yet, but I am enjoying doing it. Although I keep saying it, I really do need to put a piece of art work on here from time to time. So here you are – I give you ‘Euphoria Borealis’ (or Belly Laugh) which was the last painting for my graduation exhibition. I had just completed a 10,000 word Dissertation, a 5000 word one about my personal project (‘Echostains’) which included 10 large paintings and 2 x 500 word essays as well as course work. Wouldn’t you be laughing? Of course I have much more recent work, it’s just a case of getting around to scanning some sketchbook stuff or photographing the bigger pieces, but I am determined to do it!
As for my altered book which has disappeared yet again….one day I shall actually finish it! I will have to revise the way I have documented this book. I think the best way would be to make a gallery especially for it, so each page is linked with its own artist reference (because the project is an art project, underpinned with art history) and each pages should follow the other, like in a real book. Lol! I can see me making a blog just for my altered book!!!….not a bad idea
The material for my teapot articles are getting a bit tougher to find. My favorite one lately is the making of the chocolate teapot. I shall carry on though. There’s no shortage of material for the weird and wacky design section either, so I will keep that going. Some sections, like places are now a thing of the past, but this year we are hoping to go to new places nothing planned yet – except to see Iggy Pop in London in May, but do hope to fit a couple of exhibitions in whilst we’re there.
