I'm having an afternoon to myself today and I like it.
I'm half watching Garden State whilst painting.
I like it.
I'm relaxed and content with myself.
I'm thinking about traveling around Eastern Europe in Summer and I'm excited. I like exploring new places. I don't really want a career. I think they're made up things. I do know that I want to paint and draw though so I'd quite like that as my job.
I recommend watching the film Garden State if you've not already seen it. If you have, watch it again.
What do you think to these three little paintings?
I never know whether I'm a fan of Valentines Day or not. Instead of buying something, I decided to paint these rather nice pebbles I found at the beach on Saturday. They are a pair of sloths. I hope Mark likes them. I also hope he doesn't see this before I give them to him.
I used to only be able to work on very large pieces of paper. No matter how I tried I couldn't constrain my drawings and paintings.
It's strange that now, I find myself working on a much smaller scale, drawing pictures of tiny things. I wonder if it's because I no longer have the freedom of a studio space at uni to spread out in (and often get quite messy with paint).
Not that it's a bad thing, maybe it's something I have recently learnt to do?
Does my environment directly effect the things I make? I don't know. Just a thought really before I go to sleep! Interesting though.....to me anyway!
Here are some small pictures I have made. I'm planning to make a whole series of sets to be sold, each having a different theme. Keep your eyes peeled my friends.
