First a big thank you to a-n for featuring this blog in the May digest/e-alert and to those who haven’t seen it yet, the May digest has a link to a pre-election advocacy toolkit to help artists continue to make the case for the arts.
I was going to go to Boldshaves early this morning but the weather forecast was a bit gloomy and I decided I have enough rainy footage so had a Sunday lie in instead.
Sunday is often a day for catching up with business paperwork, a teeny bit of housework and the like but also for grabbing time to get into the studio. I have been planning to try some work on newspapers as a way of responding to the idea of gardens as “glowing islands of civilisation” (see 20 April blog post) in a context of growing political tensions around the world and this is the result from today. Still a work in progress, but working better than I thought it would.
I’ve also started to sort my video clips for the film.
