My first opportunity this week to get into the studio, and it’s not too cold today!
I’m commissioned to make a garden mirror. With much foresight, when I was cutting down several large bushes in the garden, I stripped them and labelled them, thinking I might use them eventually. The frame I’ll make for the mirror will use the Hibiscus that had failed because it was crowded out in a border. So it will live on – in a different form.
While waiting for the mirror I returned to some small preparatory painting/drawings I work on intermittently. Painting is the one activity where I can lose myself completely – and do not have an expectation of a certain outcome. These small works are building into an interesting series.
