I have at long last made cleared much non-art related stuff out of ‘my’ shed and had a glorious short session in it today (40 minutes is better than nothing, but am working on getting more time in there).

One of my downfalls is that I end up letting the admin side of things take up my studio time.  I’m horrid to myself in not valuing time spend on my own practice.

Now I have looked at a piece I did a few weeks ago and am taking it onwards as a starting point for a new piece.  This time I’ve stuck torn up mono-printed writing onto the paper after painting.  Written blind in charcoal (into wet paint).

At the recent Young Open exhibition someone asked me if this was an internal battle I was having between writing and painting and I said no, but perhaps it is as it’s sustaining my work now.
