So now it is over, everything packed up and going into store. I had a few sales and over 200 people came to see my work so I am pleased about that. I find exhibiting quite draining – so much socialising! and it blocks my art making for a while. However, a week has passed so I need to get back into the swing of making. For a while I will play around with some ideas and see what develops.
One thing I did in the show was buy pieces of acrylic, like the above and make simple assemblies, to catch the light and show colour mixing with overlays. I’m wondering now how to develop this – or just enjoy it as it is.
Yesterday I did something quite different – a sketchbook workshop with Karen Stamper. I have made many sketchbooks myself, but it’s good to do something not too serious and pick up a few new ideas. Who knows what might percolate out eventually?
