My apologies for the quality of the last two photos…must have been tired when I took those but as I have said many times before, I am an artist, not a photographer. I hope you can endeavor to enjoy regardless!
My apologies for the first photo. I didn’t have a good look at the photos before I moved on with the process and as most processes go, once you’re into it, there is no turning back. Hopefully the second and third photos makes up for my first! Enjoy!
Recently, I decided to draw and paint some of my mother’s china patterns. The china has already been commandeered by various family members but I wanted to create some memory of it, the fine dinner parties and the good company for my mother. Here is the first attempt at one of her pieces using a process approach. Most of you know I’m not what I would call a “perfectionistic” or “fussy” artist. I barely look at the page when I draw, trying to trust my eye to send the proper messages back to my visual cortex and hope that it all transfers through to the motor cortex properly! I hardly ever erase so what I see is what you get. Enjoy, have a root through your family things and see what you can make of it and, as always, keep making art.
One of my many treasured sisters and her husband arrived for a surprise visit this week so we have had more than a few cups of tea since their arrival! Thought this may be appropriate to share as a result as with more tea drinkers in the house my less often used cups have found their way to the front of the cupboard again! And I am very happy about that as I definately beleive that the fine china needs to be used not just displayed!!!! Hope you enjoy, have a belated easter tea of your own with the cherished ones in your life and keep making art!!!
