Since the computer broke and left me with the inability to blog, something also happened to my urge to create jewellery. I wasn’t able to restock certain supplies online and I was feeling pretty cut off from the world. I was in such a good place too, creating some of my strongest jewellery work to date, then suddenly, it was all taken away from me. In this situation I decided to return to my artwork as I just can’t cope with not thinking about ideas, making stuff or getting my hands dirty.
I tend to swap things over when I am ready and reach a plateau of creativity in one field, however this time, I wasn’t quite ready to hang up the pliers just yet.
So, it seems, I am back into painting and drawing, led on by circumstance. It’s very hard to concentrate on two disciplines at once. You need a few months to get really back into the swing of things and let the ideas flow and progress. I had been concentrating on jewellery all year and was really enjoying it. Maybe, after all it was time for a change.
Here is some of the work that I have been doing while I’ve been away from the jewellery making.
Coming to Life
Leaf Pattern II
All the paintings are acrylic on canvas.
The amount of work I have accumulated at home now is ridiculous! I have finally managed to photograph some more work and will be adding a page to my site devoted to artwork and paintings.
I am hoping for the opportunity that they can be shown at the Chapel Allerton Arts Festival in September. Its great that they are given a chance to be shown and appreciated by others. I believe the Chapel Allerton Arts Festival is on the first weekend in September. The art exhibition will be in the Methodist Church.
