At last, I’ve had a break through with my self portrait project! You may remember from a previous post that I was considering how to get the embossed look for the background of my painting; well at last I think I’ve found a solution. I intend to sew a key motif in gold thread onto the gold painted background. This also helps me with another aspect of my work that I have been thinking about for some time; adding embroidery to my paintings.
I am also busy applying for art opportunities at the moment, which unfortunately takes up a lot of my time. Alongside this I’m planning to get new business cards printed, as well as prints of my work which I can then sell. I also need to order a new roll of canvas and generally stock up on materials. All of this means that my practice is somewhat on the back burner at the moment. I hope to be getting back to work by the end of this month.
