It’s been a long time – far to long since I have been here on the blog. I guess life just got a bit too busy here on the farm and at Colours on Grey. So many things just happened – here are a few of them.
I have attended a lot of markets this summer (something I think I am getting a little bit too old for) – but I love getting out and about, connecting with people and enjoying a day out in the sun. If you have followed me on Instagram – you would have seen some of the places I have been. Anyway, it’s winter now here in Glen Innes, and markets are definite of for the time being.
The other thing that kept me busy was workshops, – and the inspiration that followed these. My last two posts were about an art class I did and that really inspired me to do more. So in September 2016 I attended Julie Paterson from Cloth’s workshop ‘Look Draw Print’ and I liked it so much I attended another one of hers in March 2017. Julie does amazing work on fabric. You should look her up.
I managed to do these fabric prints, and they are definitely not the last ones.
I also attended a 2-day painting workshop with Artist Michelle Hungerford from Tamworth. Michelle has a wonderful approach to landscape painting. This is my painting from that weekend, and there are more to come.
The result of attending creative workshops is often inspiration, so I ended up spending a lot of time in the studio, artworks piling up everywhere, and I had hoped to get it all sorted and organised during the summer. But we had an unprecedented hot summer with temperatures over 35 degrees, – and not much work got done at all!.
Then – one day – I walked by a little shop being emptied – and I had a bright (ha-ha) idea. I would start doing workshops! Start inspiring people to be creative…….. I mean – why not…….
Well – I did – and now I am busier than ever! More about my new creative adventure later or catch up via Facebook and Instagram.
Until next time……
