It’s been pretty quiet on my blog lately…. well for months really. What can I say? I’ve been busy. Poor excuse you say, and of course you’re right. Last year is too long ago to remember properly. Just briefly, I started a new challenge with Reddy Arts, joined some drawing classes on how to draw birds, taught by Natalia Balo http://www.bfineart.com.au/ and spent loads of time drawing portraits from photos on Sktchy. I taught a textile workshop (Life Amongst the Lilies) to some of the QQ ladies mid year, tweaked some quilt designs/patterns; made some baby quilts…… worked at my real job, did some reading………… and started a diary (essential if you suspect you have a failing memory…) The difficulty is remembering to write in it.
In the gallery are a few things from 2019.
Now I am looking forward to continuing to improve my drawing and painting skills, as well as keeping some textile art coming. I would like to explore mixed media, and have recently joined a suburban sketchers group, which gets me out with like minded people and helps to overcome that self consciousness of drawing in public.
Until my next post, I wish you all many happy and creative hours pursuing your art endeavours!
